10 Things to Make With Tulle: #1… No-Sew Tulle Tutu

Tulle is heavenly. Or maybe it’s just me that thinks that. Does anyone else love it as much as I do?

I have seriously thought about making my entire shop a shop full of nothing but tulle flourishes/ rosettes. Maybe one day? I just don’t think I’d find a lot of people that share my obsession ;)

:::

Today I was thinking about all the fabulous ways to use tulle and thought this would make a fun mini blog series… 10 things to make with tulle!

Of course I have to kick it off with the ridiculously fabulous tutus you see everywhere. I recently had the pleasure of making one for a little princess named Nevaeh. I’ve mentioned her before here and there, but in case you’re new to my blog, little Nevaeh battles Leukemia but most days you’d never know it. She is a true fighter full of life and spunk.

Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of little Nevaeh wearing the tutu, but if I do get some I will sure try to remember to share them :)

I took the manikin out to my backyard early Tuesday morning. Tuesday {which just so happened to be my birthday} was probably one of the most beautiful days we have seen this year. The sunrise that morning was glorious. My neighbors probably thought I was a little nuts to be dragging a manikin across my yard so early in the morning..

I think it was worth it ;)
In case you’re wondering… this is a stretchy headband but it looks pretty neat as a necklace too, huh?
I didn’t think about taking pics of the tutu-making process but I found this tutorial in case you’re interested in trying it out. It’s super easy I promise, just takes loads of tulle.. and time.
