This is how I make my Daughter Tutu, except I use in electric for the waist band. I also cut my own piece from yards of tutu because it is cheaper that way, I usually cut them any where from 2 inches to 6 inches wide strips, remember they dont have to be straight no one will see once all together. They can be cut to any length depending on your child’s size and needs. After deciding the length I double it and add 2 inches for the loop so it won’t be too short. When looping them on I didn’t use the exact middle of the tutu piece, so it would have longer and shorter look (like in the photo below). Keep looping them round until you can’t see the elastic anymore when on. Update 3-10-16
Know someone who would love to make one of these for their little girl, please share.

Lace Tutu done the same way, cutting strips and looping them on the elastic.
This is a full length Tutu for Halloween, done the same way with add butterfly sleeves and a bow in the front. Here’s the link to the post about this tutu.
This one is scraps of fabric with some black tulle mixed in to give it fullness.

How did you get the multi layered look? Will it look like this with a single row or do I need to do multiple?
They are all one layer, but to make it look different the lengthens are different (when you loop them on they dont need to be perfectly even to give them the different lengthen look), for the scrap and tulle one I alternated pieces. From my experience the more tulle the fluffier it looks. I hope that helps. Alicia
What type of fabric is that. I went to Walmart to look for similar fabric where would you recommend getting that fabric from?
its tulle I get mine at Jo ann Fabrics but I do believe its at Wal-Mart too.
how did you loop the tulle on the ribbon?
No I used a piece of elastic (instead of ribbon) cut to fit her waist and sewed the ends together.
Sorry I read the question wrong you fold the tulle in half then pull the ends through the top (loop where you folded), you have to that around the ribbon.
What exact color is all four spools of tulle? Adorable! thanks in advance
Teal, Maroon, Dark purple, and blue (sky almost).
Please cite us and put a link to our tutorial since you’re using our images. Thanks so much!
Np I think I only sited the pin I got it from.
Does the fabric ever loosen from the elastic?
I little but not enough to fall off, I have even washed a couple, which I dont suggest but nothing fall off. The tulle kinda sticks to this self.
considering making one of these for a trial run. How much tulle should i think about buying?
4 Rolls of tulle or at least 3 flat yards of tulle. Here are some better directions http://www.thehairbowcompany.com/No-Sew-Ribbon-Tie-Tutu_b_90.html

Could I make this for my 13 year old daughter? Would I just have to make it bigger?
yes measure her waist for the elestic size and measure how long you want the tutu (like from the hips to the knees) than double number that and add 2 inches. That should fit prefect.

How many yards of tulle do you use for a toddler tutu?
I have a question about the Halloween tutu with the sleeves and bow… Do you have a tutorial for that One??? Or at lest directions/instructions on how it is/was made?
Thanks in advance!
Yes I modified a tissue pattern. Here is the blog post about it. https://analinaragdolls.wordpress.com/2013/09/02/halloween-tutu-dress-toddler-girls-simplicity-1768-review/
Thats an old pattern too, so here’s what I did. I used a piece of elastic around her chest, and used a flutter sleeve and hand sewed it on. I made the long tutu and sewed a big bow on the front. It should be easy to do without the pattern. If you need more info just ask!!
