would i do it again? : yep!
with all the tutus i make, i've built up quite a stash of scraps so i'm coming out of quasi-hibernation to share some adorable ballerina-inspired valentines:
...however, these tiny tutus aren't limited to just one day a year -- they can work with several sentiments like welcoming a new baby, a special birthday, or a job well done.
you can download and print the simple foldable 3x4" cards i made if you don't feel like making your own:
once printed, use a needle to poke through the designated holes:
thread string through the holes to form the waistband...
...and knot in the back:
don't knot it too tight -- leave just enough room so strips of tulle can be slid under the string.
i used white electrical tape to cover the knot on the inside of the card.
time to make the tutu!
i cut strips of tulle about an inch wide and five or six inches long.
...and started knotting them one by one onto the thread:
after trimming the tutu, i had my finished card!
