I cant tell you how proud I am of

How to make a 10 inch tutu

Step 1: Gather supplies

4 Rolls of 25 yards of tulle
Ribbon
Scissors
Carboard 10 inches wide

Take first roll of tulle
wrap the whole roll of tulle around the cardboard


Cut one side of the tulle




repeat for all 4 rolls of tulle


Now you have 4 sets of 20 inch lengths of tulle




Now get your ribbon
measure your waist
the 20 inches added is for the length of the bow to be tied

waist + 20 inches + 20 inches = total length of ribbon needed




We are adding a second ribbon {optional}



If you do add the second ribbon
pin in place 20 inches down from the right side and 20 inches down from the left side
This is just so it will stay in place when you start adding the tulle




Start adding the tulle at one side when it is pinned in placed

You will be using all 100 yards of tulle
if you have left over tulle
push the tulle closer together for a fluffy tutu





All done!
