DIY: Tutus Aren’t Just For Dancing Anymore

You know what they say…

She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten…


What better way to leave a trail of glitter than making a tutu.


Tutus aren’t just for dancing anymore.

    This is so cute, and easy too. My daughter would have loved one when she was little. I pinned it. Thanks for the giveaway.

    My daughter loves all things sparkly and glittery – I love your quote “She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten…” it is so her 🙂 I’ve pinned your tutu-orial.

    One year I made a few tu tus and took them to a Christmas party to give to the girls. They liked to twirl in their fancy skirts more than play with all of their expensive new toys. I used the same method of making them as you, it is my favorite way.

    I love your site. I’m currently living in China (hubby’s job sent us here). I did not bring my sewing machine-boo hoo-but have filed several ideas away for later use. I am more of an embellisher on store bought items, but as I mentioned, i love many of your ideas! I look forward to your posts

    I love this tutu! I’m going to have to whip one up for my 5yo, ballerina-obsessed granddaughter.

  12. Ahhhhh the petticoat! So popular around here with little girls and grown women. It’s not the same if you don’t have cowgirl boots on with them! Yours looks adorable!
