Little OL had a princess part to attend so I decided to make her a “no-sew tutu” and bought her a little tiara crown to match.
It was really easy to make. Measured some elastic to go around her waist, took a safety pin and pinned the ends of the elastic together and then just tied strips of tulle over the elastic in alternating colours. I used turquoise, purple and green. It was so easy I got carried away and made a matching one for her teddy “Door Stop”
So where are the pictures of her looking cute and adorable in it? There are none – my little tomboy point blank refused to put it or the tiara on. I managed to get the teddy’s one on for all of about 3 seconds before she pulled that off. Apparently boy teddies don’t wear tutus!
HERE is a tutorial and photo of one very similar . (using an elastic headband is pretty clever)
