This DIY Easy No Sew Tutu is great if you have little girls or to give as a gift. I recently made this tutu for my beautiful niece for her birthday, and she loved it! If you are looking for an inexpensive gift idea or fun costume this, is it!
DIY Easy No Sew Tutu
Gather your tools:
- 6″ rolls of tulle (each roll is usually 25 yards)- You can use as many colors as you like, I prefer 1-3 colors in each tutu
- 1/2- 1 inch sturdy elastic- I used 20 inches to make a tutu sided for a 4 year old.
First you will need to decide your sizing for your tutu. The best thing to do is to measure your little one to get a waist measurement and approximate of how long you want your tutu to be. Cut your elastic about an inch longer than your desired waist size. You can either tie the ends together (If you want a true no-sew) or quickly use a needle and thread to sew them together.
Next you will need to cut the tulle into strips. I cut 12 inch strips of both green and polka dot tulle. Take 2 layers of tulle, if using multiple colors use one of each, and lay them on top of each other and fold them all in half. Take the folded middle part and side it under the elastic about an inch. Now take the tails of the tulle and pull them over the elastic and through the loop and gently tighten to form a knot. Continue around the elastic until you have done it all.
Now it is time to fluff the tulle and your DIY Easy No Sew Tutu is complete!
