Question Need help in deciphering a tulle pom pom tut...

I haven't had much luck making a tulle pom pom, using the basic tut that's everywhere (i.e., cut tulle into rectangles or wrap around a piece of card and then cut; tie center of stack with thread and "fluff"). I haven't tried the donut template method because I don't have enough tulle (only 2/3 yd, and it's in two cuts). I have only 10 days to make a fairy princess wand for my granddaughter's 3rd birthday, so I'm getting nervous.

What I'm not understanding in this tut is what the poster means by "BUT the first one will be crease side up, second one crease side down..." in the 2nd step, and I can't figure it out from the pic, either. What do "up" and "down" mean?

I welcome any and all interpretations! Thanks!

Default Re: Need help in deciphering a tulle pom pom tut...

the only thing i can figure she is saying (without having tulle in front of me) is take the lenght of tulle and fold in half lengthwise, then when you stack them on top of each other, lay down one with fold on one edge, and the next one flip it to where the fold is opposite of that, then alternate back and forth...since it all gets cut in the end, i guess that is to help the tulle lay flat when you do the accordian fold on the next step....hope this helps!!!

I thought that might have been it, but the "up" and "down" really threw me! Thanks! I'll let you know how it works out!

I made pom poms for a tinkerbell costume using the "doughnut" method & they turned out great. you can adjust the size of the circle you use to work w/the amount of tulle you have. i made a more of a semi-circle template b/c i needed a flatter bottom to attach to shoes. it can be in diff. cuts b/c you trim it to shape it when you're done anyway. I'm sure you'll come up w/something great...good luck!!
