How to Make a Tutu

Excerpt from Fiskars' Girly Skeleton Homemade Halloween Costume

Materials:

  • Razor-edge Softgrip® Scissors (8")
  • Organza - pink, black, approx. 3 yards
  • Elastic, to stretch around child's waist 3/4" wide

Instructions:

1.) To make a tutu, cut organza into strips approx. 20” long and 4” wide. Use the Fiskars’ Razor Edge Soft Grip scissors, which can just slice up the organza without the need for actual snipping. This makes the job much quicker, which is helpful because you will need a lot of these. Cut the ends of all the strips into triangular points.



2.) For the waistband of the tutu, measure some elastic (mine was ¾” wide) around your child's waist so that it stretches comfortably around her. Sew the two ends of the elastic together to form a loop.



3.) Next, tie the organza strips onto the elastic. First fold the organza in half and put the loop of the fold underneath the elastic. Then bring the two ends of the fabric up over the elastic and through the loop and pull tightly. The more strips you add, the fuller the skirt.

Now use your technique to make these adorable DIY crafts:
