1 Yard Stretchy Ribbon
4 Inches White Satin Ribbon
1 Square Each Black and White Felt
Measure the child from chest to floor, double this number. This will be the length of your strips of tulle.
Measure the stretchy ribbon around your child’s upper chest, about arm-pit height. Cut to length.
Wrap the satin ribbon around the stretchy ribbon to make a seam. The stretchy ribbon is impossible to sew.
The satin makes a nice clean seam. I used a zig-zag stitch, but a strait would work fine.
Stretch your ribbon circle around a chair back.
Using one strip of tulle, fold the tulle in ½ and push thru one hole of stretchy ribbon.
Open the top loop of the tulle and pull the tails thru. Work the knot tight.
Repeat this around the entire circle of the stretchy ribbon. The more strips, the fuller the tutu.
Fold two strips of tulle in ½ and tuck and pull in the top row centered on your child’s chest.
You will have pulled thru 4 ends, separate, so you have 2 over each shoulder. Criss-cross and tuck and pull in the top row of the back of the stretchy ribbon.
Tie the tulle in a bow.
Cut out the eyes from the black felt.
Cut out a mouth. Then hand stitch or glue the layers of eyes.
