So the next Christmas gift that I ended up making was more for fun than anything. I've seen so many really cute tutus out there and wanted to make one but I have a boy and no other baby girls in our family to make a tutu for. So I made a tu-tu for the 6 month old baby girl I babysit and a friend of ours 4 month old baby girl!
I sat down in front of the tv and slip knotted the tule around a strip of ribbon. I cut the ribbon to be 3 times the waist size of the 6 month old so it would be plenty big enough to tie a bow and then as the child grows the ribbon would allow for growth where elastic is only going to stretch a little.
No tutorials on the hair bows...sorry I was so into "trying" to make them cute and getting burned constantly w/ the hot glue gun; I wasn't able to do pictures and I haven't the slightest on how to explain them to you. Very sorry about that guys.
Inspired by sweet baby girls!
