Default Re: Help me tutu makers

I've made a few and read tons of different ways to make them. The elastic that works best is the no roll elastic, and most people use 3/4." If you use just one stripe of tulle your knot it tighter, if you double or triple it up, it will be more loose and to me does not look as neat. I haven't satin or ribbon wrap any of mine, I guess the look of the know wouldn't matter if you did that because it'd be hidden. Good luck.
