When I did my first tutu, it took me 2 days! And when I was done, I would not let my DD touch it!!! Heheh... Now, it takes me less than an hour.
You will get it. And you are right..... nothing is more precious than having your DD wear something that you had made lovingly!
I have 40% off coupons for JoAnns and Michael's. Let me know if you want them for the 6 inch rolls. I will email them to you. PM me.
For a 2 year old tutu skirt, you will probably only need 2 rolls for an extra fluffy/poofy skirt. Possibly even just 1 roll for a regular 2 year old tutu skirt.
