No-sew tutu – #pinaddicts challenge

I’m taking part in a blogging Pinterest crafting challenge! (This will come as no surprise to those who know me well, it was only a matter of time before something like this happened). It’s very simple – you find something you want to make on Pinterest, make it, and then show everyone else.

I decided to make this no-sew tutu that I pinned on my Pinterest board from Red Ted Art’s Blog.

It really is easy-peasy. You just cut strips of netting into lengths (I ordered mine off eBay – £2.99 for 25yds). Fold them in half and lay on top of a ribbon or piece of elastic

Then pull the two ‘tails’ behind the ribbon and back through the hole at the top, in a knot.
Keep on adding lengths of netting in the same way all the way along the ribbon.

And there you have it. Gertie didn’t seem too bothered by it, but I think she looks pretty bloody cute!

I’m now going to order loads of different coloured netting as I figure I can make any number of costumes using this technique – green and black for a witches costume, white for the Easter bunny etc etc. Love it!

  7. I love net tutus and yours look beautiful in those colours. I made myself and my daughter one last year for Camp Bestival in the very stiff net. Really effective – but a bit itchy. Tulle is lovely but is pricier x thanks for joining us at #pinaddicts x

  8. Super cute! Great idea to do different ones – I think a rainbow one will definitely be made at the end… :)
