There is been a big “tutu” fad sweeping across the nation, it will probably be a big costume hit this year! Recently I learned how easy it is to actually make one of these tutus yourself. I begged my daughter to be a fairy so I could make a tutu, she didn’t budge. So what did I do? I decided that I, yes MOM was going to be a fairy!
I found a pair of fairy wings at the dollar store. I then took those colors that were in the wings and made a tutu to match. I found rolls of Tulle at my local Hobby Lobby store, I used 3 rolls. I also used a roll of ribbon to “accent” the tutu. I used a stand of elastic I had around but you can use anything really from ribbon to fabric. If you have a skirt with an elastic waist that you don’t want anymore, cut out the skirt part and use that!
I used a no-sew tutorial (see below) because I am not a sewer by any meals. This tutu was so easy to make and it took less than 2 hours! I actually did it while watching TV.
For my clothes I just wore all black but your little one can use a leotard, check the thrift store for a dance costume to wear underneath.
I am not a very good teacher when it comes to everything crafty so I am going to pass you on to the tutorial I used from MomDot.com
