So ANYWAY, I looked around at a few different sites figuring out how you are supposed to make a tutu.
The general idea is:
1. Get tulle (6yds of the wide tulle) and elastic - 1/2 - 1in - I used 3/4 and it was probably too big, I'd recommend 1/2in
2. Measure the waist and subtract 2-3 in - when you are pulling the tulle it makes the elastic stretch out a bit, plus you don't want it falling down when your little one is running
3. Cut your tulle 6in wide by 20-24in long - I made mine 18 inch because I didn't want that long of a skirt. When makin the skirt you double over the tulle so the skirt in my case was about 8.5 in + 1in that was around the band. Seriously, cutting the tulle was the most annoying part, mine was SO uneven. Next time I make one I am going to look for the tulle that already comes in 6in wide and get about 20 yds (that's what someone in blogland said). Cutting was a pain in the tuchus.
ETA: I went BACK to Joann Fabric and found the 6 inch tulle in the WEDDING SECTION. I bought up some pink, yellow, (more) orange, and purple.
it was all I had) and get to work.
6. To loop the tulle: Ok, I may be REALLY dumbing this down, but hey... you never know.
a. Fold tulle in half and make loop at the top
Happy Tutu-ing (ok, so I just made that up), Enjoy!
