How to make a Tutu
You can use any colors that you want but I just used the colors below as an example.
What you will need:
Tulle: Youl need Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet (put them on in that order for an awesome tutu)
you will need at least 1 yard of each color but the more you use the fuller it will be!!!!!!!
you can use either ribbon or a crochet 2-3'' headband
measure the waist of whom you will be doing the tutu for give your self a little extra ribbon to be able to tie a nice bow
tie a knot on each side of the ribbon to the exact measurement of the waist
put the ribbon around something round and tie it (i use my leg, or our big sanitizer bottle)
you want your ribbon to measure 6''x how ever long you want it IF you want it to be 6'' long cut 12'' you will be folding it in half
take your cut ribbon(the size you want) gather it in the middle ( fold it half exactly and the top that its together gather there)
make a slip knot with the tulle on the ribbon, continue until theres no more room go in the order of red,orange,yellow,green,blue,indigo,violet for best results
the last thing to do is when done you will be able to tie the tutu around the waist instead of putting on that way it is so much easier for bathroom breaks
