How To Make A Ribbon Trimmed Tutu, YouTube Thursday - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Welcome back to YouTube Thursday…or if you are new WELCOME, WELCOME!

Today, you are in for a real treat…a tutu-riffic treat! As you all know, I am a huge fan of our video tutorials, because I have learned so much and hope you have too. I love learning new tips, tricks and techniques on creating fabulous hair accessories and fun projects to dress up my home or accessorize my sweet baby girl’s wardrobe!

Week after week I think that the latest video may just be my favorite, but today’s video is topping my list of all time, absolute favorites! This tutu is simply lovely! It is dainty, sweet and precious too, just like the little girlee who will be wearing it. It is also perfect for a costume, dress up or to wear to church or a special event. Wherever your little lady wears this gorgeous tutu, it is sure to turn heads with a couple of OOOO, LA, LAs!

Pink Satin Tutu Button Dusty Rose Tulle
The supplies you need are:

For the Tutu:
Needle and Thread (for the elastic)

To Trim the Tutu:
7/8″ Satin Ribbon
Sewing Machine

For the Satin Waist:
Satin Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun

Let’s join Shirley and learn how to make this beautiful Ribbon Trimmed Tutu! Enjoy!

Isn’t that tutu incredible? I love the extra glam the satin ribbon adds to the tulle that takes this tutu to a whole new level. The fullness of the tutu is amazing and what about those chubby little legs hanging out the bottom??? Yummy!! Tutus are such a fun way to dress up your little lady and make her feel like a beautiful princess. Make one for all the girls in your family too, for a family photo opt, special event or your next formal holiday festivity.

    Could you have sewn the ribbon on each strip of tulle before you made the tutu and then put the tutu together, just something I thought would make the process much easier and faster
