One of my friends asked how I made my daughter's tutu...so I thought I'd share on here. I know I have a lot of moms out their reading my blog....so maybe this can help you out when you're in need of a tutu!
There are many different ways to make a tutu, but this seems to be a simple/easy way to do so. You need elastic that measures a bit smaller than your child's waist. I did a quick whip stitch to connect the ends. I did not cut the extra elastic off so that I could grow the tutu as my daughter grows. I purchased a half yard of a shiney pink & a half yard of a flat pink(wish I would have had used a bit more to make it even fuller). I first cut the half yard in half, and then cut that into 2 inch strips. I fold the strip in half over the elastic and tie a double knot to connect it to the elastic. I do an AB pattern with the flat/shiney pink(in the fall I made her a black and yellow one for Halloween!)
The tutu was created as part of the Cow Appreciation Day costume(CAD is a Chik-Fil-A thing..you get free food if you dress like a cow!!!). Eli got to wear big sister's first CAD costume. Not sure he'll be wearing the tutu next year :) ha ha My wife clipped on ears and a tail....why do more than that...the baby gets all the attention(and for good reason!).
