Default Crochet headband tutu dress.

I am getting ready to attempt my very first one and I was just curious if anyone had any tricks or tips for me? I get the general idea how to do it...very similar to making just a regular tied tutu but I am just worried its not going to turn out quite as great as the ones I have seen you girls make on here so any advice would be great!

TIA

its really easy my biggest tip is to layer layer layer tie one layer on the bottom and 2nd layer on top to give it the "poof" dont forget to play with the colour combos and add fun stuff like ribbon strands, gems, anything you feel with give it a personal touch that no one else does make it long-ball gown lenght but not so she trips over it she should be able to run around in it without tripping tie on shoulder strap ribbons and your all set to go have fun!

I am trying one also... I should have it finished today and will post a pic. I am taking a 6" headband, folding it in half and stitching it. I should be able to do a layer of tulle on the inside and outside of the headband which should make it a little fuller...we shall see.

Where did you get your 5.5 inch crochet headbands? I am looking for an orange one and can't find one anywhere!

I've been wondering the same thing! My dd is almost 14 months old and I would love to make her one like these.

How do you do these? Do you just use one piece of tulle at a time and go through the little holes of the crocheted headband?

I made one and displayed it in my store and got several requests for more. My plan is to sew two headbands together to make a larger one. Will let you know how it goes.

I thought about sewing two headbands together to make it bigger; however, won't that cause the headbands to unravel??
