No Sew Tutu tutorial

The girls and I tried making some no sew tutu’s. I think it turned out quite charming.

Summer 179

We got the idea from Julie on You Tube. Check out her short video by clicking on the picture.

I did tweak her design a bit by making my sections of tulle around four inches wide. I found it easier to cut once I had folded it in half three times.

Summer 170

I also made them much longer because I’m making them for my girls who are much bigger than the toddler size. I also couldn’t resist adding ribbon in between layers of tulle.

Summer 173

Loved how it turned out. Once my daughter had it on she couldn’t stop dancing…

Summer 183

And running and playing. I don’t know if I’ll be able to catch her to take it off. She’s having that much fun wearing it while pretending to be a dancing fairy Princess.

Summer 187

Andrea of Love Monkey also has instructions for a different No-Sew Tutorial that she posted on Kiddley. Click on picture for the link.

Make Them Yourself, also has a friendly no sew tutorial.

So get to it. Start cranking out those fun tutu’s for your very own little princess. And don’t forget to have fun.

These are so fun, and with the fairy wings below would make the perfect halloween costume! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

I am definitely stealing this for halloween :] Question: did you cut the edge of each piece of tulle at an angle? it looks like it from the picture, i can't tell..

:D

Natalie - no I didn't cut the ends on angles, but I do think that would be cute if you tried it.

HI, I know this is an old post. I found you by googling no sew tutu.
I am going to be doing this for about 10 girls for a party. Do you have any guess or estimation, (based on how much you used)how much tulle i might need?

Thanks!
Any help would be appreciated!
