Presenting...my first tu-tu!

 Well, here is the completed project.  My very first no-sew tutu! Last week at a birthday party, one of Logan's little grill-friends (as he so affectionately calls them) received one of these as a gift.  I was SO impressed, and the crafty-mama who gave the gift was kind enough to send me some tutorials.  Did this come out cute or what?  Truth be told, I would have chosen a different color scheme, but when I went to Wal-Mart last night (with my kids at 8:00 pm...not very smart) I was determined to get ALL the supplies necessary to complete the project and Wal-Mart's ribbon selection was extremely limited, to say the least.  So, I just got what they had so I could get to work.  I even made the little broach myself (thanks to another tutorial that crafty mama sent over).  Well, thanks for humoring me!  I hope you like this!

Awesome! How much dod you end up spending? I just saw some at a shop last week for $12,, complete w/ matching hair clip.

Mindy...Well, if you take away the little flower (which was only expensive because of the start-up costs...special glue, felt, etc.) the actual tu-tu was about $5 bucks in supplies. Now that I know how to do it (and if I bought bulk and used Michael's coupons) I could probably do them for about $3.00 or $3.50. The only hang-up is your time. It took me about an hour and a half. I am condsidering using this project as a MOPS fundraiser. Every year we do projects for a bazaar in Silverton....

SO ADORABLE!!! Too bad boys can't wear tu-tu's, because they look super fun to make, and major bonus that you don't have to have a sewing machine! :)

Wow! That is so cute. I would love to tutorial for that flower! I am making something for the babies room that I could use it for.

Way to go you crafty mama. :)
