What a novel idea Tina That certainly sounds very sturdy.

The first few I made I used the loop knot and the last few I've made I've used the square knot. To be honest, the square knot goes much faster for me.

You just take one strand from one bunch and one strand from the next bunch and square knot them together

I've never had a problem with the slip knot and I love the way it looks,but I like to use a double knot.

The net has a lot of different places that show you how to make a square knot (the pic below shows the knot using 2 different colored threads).

people that sew your tutus, do you mean that you sew a tutu like how traditional tutus are sewn where you cut the tulle in a circle... or are you still cutting the 6" strips and sewing them individually to the waistband?

I've always been curious when I hear people sewing them i wasn't sure if they were just doing the normal sewing old fashion tutu way or a new spectacular way that i have to try
