The Fairytale Tutus are SO cute just the way they come! I know they don’t really need a makeover, but if you really want to add some personality, I will show you how to make them even cuter by putting either petals or pom poms in between two layers of the tulle.
Supplies For Tutu
- Pom poms or petals
Supplies For Bow-tie Hair Bow
- 3″ grosgrain ribbon (cut to 8″)
- 5 1/2″ of 3/8″ ribbon (4 1/2″ to line your clip and 1″ to cover the wire center)
Take the first two layers of tulle. Match up the edges and sew them together with a matching or coordinating thread (make sure to backstitch), leaving a small opening. I put my stitches a little closer together than normal.
Put your petals or pom poms in the opening, in between the two layers of tulle. This is the easiest project EVER!! After you have “stuffed” the tutu, sew the opening shut (making sure to backstich). Thats it! Now it is going to be even funner for your little girl to twirl her little heart out!
My friend’s little girl is SO cute and SO girly! She would wear a tutu to bed if she could! She loved showing off for the camera! The tutu in the picture above is the Shocking Pink tutu.
I got the pom poms and petals at the dollar store! Such an inexpensive way to jazz up the Fairytale Tutus!
Did you happen to notice her bow? I used the Glue glider Pro and 3″ shocking pink ribbon (cut to approximately 8″) to whip up a cute little bow-tie hair bow.
I put a line of the double sided tape on the edge of one end of the ribbon. (As shown above).
Then I looped the ribbon into a circle, pressing the other end of the ribbon onto the tape.
Because I used the GlueGlider Pro I was able to fold the bow accordion style.
If I had used hot glue the folds would look really bad and uneven. It just doesn’t work. 🙂
I secured my bow by wrapping wire around it. I like to use wire for this type of bow. It is so fast! I hid the wire with matching shocking pink 3/8″ ribbon and glued the bow to a lined clip. The bow matched the tutu perfectly!
Here’s this little cutie pie wearing the Orchid tutu. She couldn’t decide which one she loved most! 🙂 The bow is a pinwheel bow, which you can learn how to make using the TOTT Instructions.
She is about to turn 4, just so you can gauge the way it would look on your little girl. It looks cute on all ages of girls, just longer or shorter depending on their height.
The Fairytale Tutu is something every little girl wants to have in her closet. Whether it be for dress up or even going out. It makes a great gift, and comes with a guaranteed smile!
