Default Tutu question....

Question!!!! (in my best Dwight Shrut voice)

how do you keep the knots on your tutu from coming loose?

I have noticed that after I finish my tutu and start taking photos my knots get looser. What can I do to keep them from coming loose and falling apart?

I would like to know too. I have the same problem I made one for my daughter and after playing she came in with 1/2 a tu tu! I knotted them back on and took clear nylon thread and sewed through the knot into the elastic but it took forever! I used a square knot but there has to be a better way right? So far so good but she has only watched TV in it.......

I've read that lots of ladies on here tie a regular knot instead of using the loop knot method.

I use a square knot. It holds up very well!

I love the way the waist looks with the loop tie method so the best thing I have found to do is tie the tulle on using the loop method then tie a tight square knot right underneath that. I did this with the last tutu I made for my 7 year old last year for her birthday. She wore it for the party and they jumped on the trampoline and ran around playing and it was fine. She also wore it to school for Halloween and trick or treating that night and it is still in great shape. HTH!!

That sounds like a great idea.

You can also wrap the waist in satin ribbon or tulle. I use a regular knot on the tutus I do not wrap. Also I sew my tutus.
