I picked three colors of […]. Please could you email me back as i dont always get to the computer to see things. I remember those days…. Now take the tails of the tulle and pull them over the elastic and through the loop and gently tighten to form a knot. For the best fit, always measure the child.
I always wrap three layers at a time around my elastic, because this allows me to get a really full tutu. You can use more or less to get your desired fullness. Take 3 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.
Just tighten it enough to be snug but not crushing the elastic. Repeat this step until all of the elastic is filled with knotted tulle. When using multiple colors I like to change the order they are layered in with each group of tulle so that the colors are spread evenly throughout. Simply go through each layer and pull the tulle to separate it and the result will be a big, fluffy tutu worth of a princess! Here are some pics of my daughter with the tutu I just made her. I call this the bubble gum tutu.
It used three shades of pink and was cut at a 15 in waist and 8 in length. We even have special freebies only for our subscribers! Click here to follow us!

Hi April- I was going to list this in the post but it really varies depending on how big the waist is and how long you make the tulle. Hi, I would like to no something about the tutu. I intend on doing like yours the 3 different colours. Please could you email me back as i dont always get to the computer to see things. Thanks for the tutu-orial see what I did there? This was super easy and pretty quick. Thanks so much for these easy instructions. I just made a gold and white one and am thinking I will need to go three colors next time.
Super cute, super easy! If I make a post on my blog about it I will be sure to link back! Here is the link where I referenced your site. Thanks again for the great tutorial! Just a different tip. That way I could adjust the waist size if needed and the ends just look like part of the tutu. Thanks for the tutorial. And your daughter is so cute! I am just wondering, does anyone have any tips on how to attach a tutu skirt made like this one to a bodice?
Instead of tying the tulle to the elastic loop it through the holes in the bodice the same way you would loop it around the elastic. Took 30 min and I had yards of material I had to cut down to 6 inch strips but still 30 min.
Thank you for this great tutorial. I just made one for my 3 yr old neighbor girl for Christmas. She wants to be a ballerina when she grows up. This will be the perfect gift for her!! Excited to make this! Question…how many more tulle strips approximately do you need for the larger waist sizes?
Thanks for the awesome directions. I absolutely LOVE this tutorial! Your daughter is adorable btw I hope I can make a tutu for mine just like that.
Thanks for this tutorial. I think 3 layers of tulle at a time really does make a difference especially with multiple colors. I have looked at a lot of tutus and tutorials, but you are the first one to answer a question that keeps popping up in my mind. I have been trying to figure out how they get the tutus on elastic so full looking.
You are the first to answer it in your tutorial. You use multiple layers. Thank you for your full explanation. I will be using this tutorial to make an adult size tutu for the Pomona Bubble Run this Saturday.
Great, easy to follow instructions — thank you!! I love this idea, I am going to make one for a mini tree skirt. I can do it in my color theme for Christmas apple green and white. This post is amazing, and the your lil girl is super cute! Thanks a bunch for these great instructions, and wish me luck! I found your blog to be the perfect instructions for a newby fabric crafter. Very nice photos and clear instructions — Thanks! With the loop still above the elastic, grab both of the bottom ends of the tulle strip.
Pull the bottom ends of the tulle through your upper fabric loop. Pull tight to create a knot around the top. Repeat with the remaining tulle strips. As you are adding the tulle strips, occasionally push the top knots together. This will stretch the elastic a bit to give you more room to add more strips for a really full tutu. Repeat until you make it around the entire waistband and can no longer see the elastic.
Pro Tip For the best fit, always measure the child. Cut the Tulle Cut strips of tulle double the size of your desired length.
Pro Tip Long tutus are not recommended for children under the age of 3, as they can be difficult to crawl in. Attach Tulle to Elastic Band Once you have cut all of your tulle into strips, take the first strip and fold in half so that it creates a loop. You can also add a satin ribbon as embellishment. Totally Tulle You now have a fabulous classic tutu that your kids will adore, and of course, it makes for great photos.
