I Did It! I Told You I Was Going To Make A Tutu!

The tutu and the hair bow only took about 2 hours last night to complete (which was why I was very sleepy today). I want to glue on little purple rhinestones on the tutu to give it a little spunk. I got all the materials at Walmart because it's closer to me than Michael's, and I didn't have time to make that trip out that way. I bought a roll of purple tulle, two 50 cent spools of purple ribbon, and a pack of headbands. I like how it has turned out so far:
I put the tutu and headband on Zakiah to see if everything fits. The tutu is a little wide so I am debating whether to tighten it up or just wait til she grows into it next month. The headband fits but needs more detail in my opinion. I also think the bow is a little too big for her head. I don't know. I will play around with it some more. As you can see, she attacked and kept grabbing the material in her hands and rubbing it between her feet.

Haha. Not too sure if she's feeling the outfit. LOL. She spat up on it right after I took this picture. That probably explains the look on her face. :) She is still cute though!

I don't know if I will be using this for her fourth month pictures. If I was at Michael's, I probably would have gotten some other colored tulle such as orange, yellow, red, and brown to reflect the fall season. I kind of want her to have a vibrant theme for her picture instead of a pastel theme. We will see what we will do for her pictures, but I just wanted to show you all how the tutu is coming along.


  1. Adorable! You have me wanting to make my daughter a tutu. She's 7 months so I think I will try it out.

  2. I think I'll become a thrifty mom as well. I want to make my daughter a tutu now.
