    DIY tutu tutorial -so easy to make!

    These tu-tu’s have to be one of the easiest things to make, and they always turn out SUPER cute! You can get creative by mixing colors and ribbons.

    Every girl deserves a party skirt!


    • 1/2 inch elastic band
    • 1-2 rolls of tulle
    • ribbon (optional
    • sewing machine or sew glue

    Want learn how to make a tu-tu? Let me show you how, it’s simple.

    how to make a tu-tu with elastic

    First you’ll need to start out with an elastic band (1/2 in – 1 in works best). These come in packs at Jo-Ann’s for about $2. Measure your child’s waist and cut the piece of elastic 1 in bigger. Then you will sew the ends together.

    Next you’ll cut your tulle (use the kind on spools-found mine at HL). I cut mine 18 inches for a 3 month old. Decide how long or short you want yours and measure accordingly.

    Next you’ll tie a double knot around the elastic. I did a pattern of white-pink-white polka dot- pink – white and so on until I got all the way around. You can get creative here and do as many colors as you’d like…however I prefer to stick to 2-3 colors. Also make sure to slide the knots real close together to get the puffy tu-tu.

    I wanted to add just a little bit of ribbon, so I tied a thin piece of ribbon next to the polka dot tulle. So it ended up being about a 5-1 ratio or tulle to ribbon. Again get creative here. Big fat ribbon looks super cute as well.

    That’s all! Is that not the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!?
