Here is an adorable little hair band and tutu that we made for my little niece. Princess Nicolette is having her 6 month pictures taken this week so we wanted to spice them up with a fun matching tutu and hair band. We love all shades of pink for little Nicolette...that is her signature color!!
The tutu was made with tulle and ribbon. We love the final results and can't wait to get princess Nicolettes 6 months pictures back...don't worry I will post her pictures :)
planner Joanne from Oh Goodie Designs commented on how she made her own similar to the ones pictured! She was kind enough to create a TUTU-tutorial.
First I gather my supplies, a roll of tulle for each color wanting to use.
I measure a yard and a half of ribbon in this case the polka dot, and tie each end to a chair.
Then, I cut about a foot from the tulle roll. I then tie making a pattern as I go the tulle in a double knot. I never tie it too tight as that would defeat the purpose of an adjustable tutu. I leave it loose enough to slide on the ribbon.
Once I finish tying, I then decorate with other coordinating ribbons and bows or flowers.
The tulle can be trimmed evenly as needed. The tutu is tied on with the ribbon in the back. I
t is adjustable to fit by sliding the tulle knots tight or spread out evenly.
