Tutu Addiction

I think I'm obsessed with tutus. Maybe I should join "tutu anonymous". I don't know why but sometimes I make something that I really enjoy and feel the need to make lots more. I did this with the totes around Christmas and am now hooked on making tutus. Besides, it just so happened that Hobby Lobby had the tulle on sale so I had to get some. They are so cute for little girls and so much fun to make. Here is the picture of Ava for her 1st birthday in the pink tutu I showed in a previous post and the beginning of my addiction. I added some small hot pink satin ribbon strips to this one for extra color. The tulle on this one didn't have the shine like th others I purchased but I liked the way it came out.

This one is my favorite. I made this one longer and added the bow. For a small child it can be worn as a dress. You can't tell, but I have strips of tulle attached to the bow to tie around the neck. When they get older, it can be used as a skirt.

This is the LSU Tutu. I couldn't find a darker purple and gold but thought this would work for a little LSU fan. The purple/gold one will be a gift but I think I'll keep the others to add to my "craft" box for little visitors and when I babysit.

You are tu(tu) funny. I bought a red tutu off ebay for my daughter's nine month pictures. We had it out a few days ago. She loved it. She ran around playing with this puffy thing on.

I, too, am obsessed with tutus. I would to make one but want to figure out some way of securing it to a onesie. Any ideas? Yours are beautiful!

Alison, snaps may work for attaching to a onesie. You'll have to move the tulle out of the way to sew the snap on the elastic but it should work.
