Tu Tu much fun!!!

A friend sent me this youtube tutorial a few weeks ago for no sew tutus!  Finally got to JoAnns last night and the girls picked their colors of tulle.  Of course the plain tulle was on sale for 89cents a yard but then Savannah spotted the shimmery tulle, which is course was not on sale and was $5.99 a yard?!?!  I had a 50% off coupon so we picked 1 color of the shimmery stuff & then 2 colors of the plain.  I totally could have made these for like $4 total but the fancy smancy fabric set us over $10!  Another word to the wise if you plan on making these for any little gal in your life, the shimmery stuff is WAY harder to work with since its thicker but it does make a super cute glittery tutu :)  I suggest asking what color/colors they want then go to the store yourself so temptation is avoided and you can stay on budget!

Here they are sporting their new ballerina looks!!! They were so happy and it actually was really easy, just time consuming!  Wish I could sell these at some local boutique or something, that would be a really FUN way to make some $$!!!!!

Here is the the link to the awesome tutorial for you all!

  1. Oooh, I like how you mixed the black and pink together. They are so cute in their tutus. I definitely agree that the shimmery tulle is the way to go.

    Can't wait to hear about the shirts!
