Heart Break Kids - Blog - How to make a tutu
Today I am going to teach you how I make a tutu. Here are the supplies that you will need: 1/2" elastic (I prefer the braided elastic)6" spools of tulle (found in any craft store, sometimes in the bridal section)1 yard of double faced satin ribbon (optional)needle and threadlarge book First, get your princess's waist measurement. Set your elastic aside, and get ready to cut your tulle. Ten inches is the standard length that I use when making a tutu. I am just noticing that it is a bit hard to see the orange tulle that I am cutting in this picture. Once you are done cutting, you are ready to start tying. find the middle slide the tulle under the elastic start your slip knot pull the ends through pull the ends down (this is a loose knot) this is what the loose knots for a play tutu should look like this is a tight knot these are what your knots should look like for a fluffier tutu After you have completely covered all of elastic with tulle, give the tutu a nice stretch. Go make a tutu!
