Step 2:

About Tulle (pronounced 'tool'), just walk into your Joanns Fabric store (this is where I get all my tullle) or your hobby lobby and tell them you need pre cut tulle and they will direct you to where it is.  Walmart does not always carry pre cut tulle.

First, measure the childs waist with measuring tape. Then you want to subtract 4 inches from that measurement. So if your childs waist is 20 inches then you want to cut a piece of Elastic that is 16 inches long. This allows some stretchiness to the tutu so it doesn't fall off your child ;)

Next you want to hot glue the elastic ends together one end overlapping the other. See picture.
Turned out real cute... Thank u
I am going to try this for my dogs :D
I know that this is an old tutorial that's been her for a while but I have just discovered it and I love it. <br>Thank you so much for doing this, I can't wait till my rolls of Tulle arrive.
They have tulle by the spool like this at fabric.com. I order many of my craft, sewing, crochet, etc. supplies there, because they have free shipping on orders of $35 or more, so I buy a lot at once for the savings.
I have made tutu dresses before, but I can never get the tulle to be stright. How do you make it Stright? I have tried starch, low ironing it, hair spray, you name it i've tried it. Please help. I will upload a picture of my tutus. Please help me. Thank you so much! Sorry its sideways.
What size tulle would be best? im searching for tulle but i have found some 6&quot; wide or 9&quot; wide and higher. what would be best to make this type of tutu do you think? or does it not really matter? :D
So sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you =( It really doesn't matter however, the wider tulle is going to make a more full tutu.
Love this idea. I tried to make a tutu before but have never been able to cut the yard of tulle straight and the end result never looked good. Just finished this one. Quick and easy and looks great. I think I will made the next one a little shorter. BTW, didn't have elastic so I used the waist band of a pair of ruined nylons. Great Instructable. Thanks
Great! So glad this worked out! It's the only way I make them =) YOu can also use ribbon as a waistband. Measure her waist then make a knot at each end of the ribbon where the tutu will meet. When you are done putting all the tulle on, you leave the knots and just tie a pretty bow with the ribbon. It's super cute =)
