A No-Sew Tutu to make!

I am going to post how to make the cutest little girl PINK Tutu. Anyone can make this. It is a no-sew Tutu! All you do is cut and tie onto elastic!
Our church once a year has a Super Craft Night where we all get together and make different crafts all night. This is the 2nd year I have been in charge of this. This is one of the 10 crafts that we will be making! This one is Pink with black and brown ribbon.
You will need 6" Tulle, 3 different colors of ribbon, 3/4" or 1" elastic, scissors or a rotary cutter, cutting mat and a needle and thread

Measure the girl's waist and cut the piece of elastic to fit. Start cutting out the Tulle strips, depending on the size of the girl. Cut them between 24"-30" long. For the one shown in the picture I cut out 33 of them 24" long. I also cut out a total of 18 strips of ribbon the same size. 6 of each color. Fold them in half and start hand tying them onto the elastic. See the pictures below.

Continue tying them onto the elastic until it's completely filled. Use a needle and thread and blind stitch closure on the elastic.This project will take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish. You can also use two different colors of tulle, add rhinestones, make them plain without ribbon, etc. A quick and easy costume for your little pink princess!

Oh, Ann- that is so adorable! It looks like it would take a lot more time to make than 30 minutes!
By the way- I did get the comment you left a while back on the bees- are they still in the house? I hope you can save them, because honey bees are a precious (and endangered) little creatures these days!
