DIY Ballerina Tutu

Crafts of all sorts can be fun; but wearable crafts are a special kind of fun! Here are some ideas for craft projects that your kids can have fun wearing.

1. Tutus

How many little girls fantasize about wearing a tutu? The good news is, you don’t have to spend a bunch of money to get a tutu; you can make one at home. Here’s how.

Materials:
* Scissors or a rotary cutter
* Measuring tape
* Ruler
* Strip of elastic, 1/2-inch wide and cut to fit around your child’s waist
* 6 to 8 yards of tulle (the net-like fabric that bridal veils are often made of)

Directions:

Measure your child’s waist with the tape measure, then purchase/cut a piece of elastic that length. Cut the tulle into strips, approximately 6 inches wide x 18 inches long (you can make them longer if you like, or use different colors to make a multi-colored DIy ballerina tutu).

Lay 3 strips of tulle on top of each other, and fold them in half over the elastic. Tie the group of tulle strips into a knot over/around the elastic. Repeat this until the tulle strips are tied all the way around the elastic.

Here’s the only sewing part – when you come to the end of the elastic, sew the ends together by hand or with a machine. You can arrange the tulle to cover the stitched part.
