Default Re: crochet headband tutu

That is how I have made all my tutus. The 1st one I did I wrapped is around a step ladder to put the tulle through..BIG MISTAKE. I over streched it and it was no longer strechy at all. I had to cut the extra room off and sew it together to fit my daughter, but once she grows at all it won't fit LOL. But my others I put the "headband" around a full paper towel roll. Works great. Remember that they stretch about 2-3 inches. so a 3T would really wear a 24 month size. So far I haven't have any problem with streching too much if you don't over stretch it like I did. The problem I have with elastic is when those strech for me you see the elastic band when the pieces move.
