I cut my elastic about 17 -18" because as you add the tulle it will stretch the elastic a bit (but don't worry, there is still so much room to grow!)

Here is a pic of a regular 2-layered tutu. Again, I just went long strip, short strip, long strip, short strip etc.
O I never thought of doing it like that!!! Well I just liked ur FB page!!! I'm working on some bows at the moment but I'm def gonna try this tonight or tomorrow! I will post a pic or tell u if I sucked lol!
