Default tu tu questions

I was just looking for ball park answers on how much tulle everyone uses in there toddler tutu's approx. I am making them about 11 inches in legnth. I want to order the spools and didn't know if each one took more than 1 spool or not to make it nice and full I imagine it would but looking for some feedback from those that make them already.

Also, does anyone know of a tu tu tutorial that sews them. Wow that is hard to write. Thanks in advance,

Default Re: tu tu questions

I would say 75-100 yards depending on length, for the baby ones about 50 yards.

I usually use 3-4 colors in mine so it is hard to be exact and most of my spools are 100 yards, although I do have a few 25 yard and 40 yard spools. When I use the 25 yard spools I will use a full spool of each color.

If I use 100 yard spools I can get 2-4 tutus (between the 3-4 color spools). I hope that makes sense!

For a tutorial on sewing search on youtube you will find lots! I tried a few different ways and settled on using bits a peices from each tutorial, so my own design. I sew mine but I cut and layer them like you would if you were tying.
