It took quite awhile to compile the info but once I did I couldn't wait to get started

The hints I have are to use your imagination and have FUN! I grab whatever tulle I have around and then start making the tutu. I go back and fill in with various colors that I find and then I smoosh all the strips together. I make sure the waistband is chock full of strips (so that no white is showing). I also like experimenting with different lengths although the longer tutus seem to over-power Christine (she is a tiny toddler).

Do you have any pictures of them? They sound really cute!

here is a tut for 2 layer and 3 layer http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/how-m...d-bow-tut.html

i havent tried the 3 layer, but her 2 layer is the way i make mine. this is doing 2 or 3 strips of tulle (diff colors) at a time, in the same knot, not filling in gaps with diff colors.

Hi Everyone. I had taken time off from my business due to a move and new job.

I was looking through my emails and came across the past few messages. First, I am not the one who has the videos or tutorial that someone is charging for.

Secondly, I will try and have something with pictures for everyone this weekend. I started doing it before life got a little crazy

My method uses one strip of tulle at a time. If you use multiple strips, your waist band gets bulky and your tutu will lay flat.297102_243828762320929_102339303136543_587532_1416766774_n.jpg
