The tutu is made using my “10-minute tutu” tutorial which you can find right here. I bought everything from Michael’s for less than $10. The tulle are spools of wedding tulle, silk flowers from the garden section & 1″ elastic from the sewing aisle. Easy peasy.
The flower additions are pretty simple too. I just popped them off their stems, trimmed off the stubby plastic back & for the skirt one attached a safety pin to a felt circle so it would be removable.For the headband I like to deconstruct the flower a bit more & then glue it back together without the plastic pieces so it’ll lay close to the head. You can find a detailed tutorial I did awhile back for the “Big Bloom Baby Headband” here.Nothing in the mailbox yet so I’ll just have to say 2 tutus down, 98 to go but I’m not too terribly worried because I received so many wonderful emails from you guys saying your sewing away & the donations should be here soon!
