my little tinkerbell

i’ve been dying to get a picture up of this…

i made a tutu for harper last week and she LOVES it.  it was super easy to make (i’ll type the instructions at the bottom) and only cost like $4.

i bought two different shades of tule (the lighter one was shiny)…one yard each.  cut the dark one into long strips and the lighter color into shorter strips (2 lengths).  i don’t know what they’re called, but you’ll need a large hair elastic…the kind that fits on like a headband.  all you do is tie the strips of tule onto the hair elastic.  put the longer strips on first and then fill in with the shorter, lighter colored ones…  when you’re done, the elastic “waist” should still fit perfectly.  cheap and easy!
