Scrappy TuTu!

now anyone that knows The Divine Miss N
know that she loves all things pretty
so the other day when i was surfing the 
net more to the point Pinterest :0) just a little addicted lol
 and she seen this pretty little Scrappy Tutu
she immediately started to hound me to make her one....
Now I'm not about to take any credit for this as it is not an 
original of source is

now you will need a few things 

1" wide elastic
sewing machine
tape measure 
scrap fabric strips or a jelly roll 

1. measure you little one or in my case my 5yr old 
for the sizing of elastic 

2. then measure from the hip of your little one to their 
knee...this so you can work out how long your 
strips should be....The Divine Miss N measured 13" 
and then you times this number by 2
so my strips were 26" in length.

3. now to make the waist band simply 
take the 2 ends of the elastic and join them 
either by hand or machine sewing...I used my machine 
as it was quicker this way...


4. Now we take all our scrap fabric and either cut into strips 
approx 2" or 2.5" as i have a very impatient little 
girl...i took the easy way out and used up some of my 
left over jelly roll no cutting for me....YaY 

you then take your folded in half strips and you attach 
each strip to the elastic by way of a slip knot....
YaY no sewing...

you continue to do this until you have used all your 
strips...I used 46 in works out to be 2 strips for 
every 1" of elastic..this way you will know just how many strips 
you will need ...It should look like this below :0)

Now you are done....

and i have one very happy little girl YaY 
now back to relaxing :0)

Happy Crafting
