For Mother's Day, I decided to get pictures taken with my girls as ballerinas. Finding a little tutu for the baby at the last minute was a bit difficult, so I decided to try making one. I was surprised at how easy this was and I love how it turned out! All this required was some elastic and some tulle. I measured the elastic around the baby's waist so it fit snugly but not too tight - then just tied a knot to connect it. For the tulle, I used 2 spools of soft nylon tulle, 25 yards on each spool. Using 12" pieces of tulle, I knotted them around the elastic until the skirt was full. Being a newby at this project, it took me about 2 hours from start to finish - but I will definitely be making more of these fun tutu's for my girls!! Next time around will be more adventurous with different colors of tulle, ribbon and embellishments.
