Would you like to see one of Chubby Fashionista's birthday gifts?
She already loves pink!
I've been making Tu - Tus for a while, but this pink and green one just might be my favorite!
Well, maybe the little girl wearing it is my favorite! ;-) She's pretty special!
The yellow and black tu tu is for a baby shower in October. If you would like to see the lil Super Model wearing, click HERE!
The traditional pastel tu tu was another baby shower gift this Summer.
Lavender and soft pink are so pretty together!
Polka dots just make me smile!
So, here's my tu tu making method...
I purchase one of the kits with the tube top and two colors of tulle already cut. To that, I add a 10 yard roll of tulle in a complimetary color and usually some type of ribbon.
I pretty much follow the directions on the package.
My favorite pattern is
2 strips of one color from the kit
2 strips of the other color from the kit
1 strip of the added tulle
Keep going all the way around the tube top!
As for the ribbon, it gets used somewhere near the top.
The dark pink ribbon is pretty wide and is threaded all the way around the top.
The white ribbon is laced back and forth up the front, kind of like a corset.
The black ribbon is just a simple bow.
There are so many tu tu tutorials (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) posted in blogland, I didn't spend much time on this tutorial. If you have any questions, just let me know at
stone (dot) cottage (dot) adv (at) cox (dot) net
I'll be glad to answer any questions!
Maybe this post will give you a new idea for all the sweet princesses in your life! I'd love to hear about your favorite tu tus!
Sending you hugs! ;-) -Marci
