First I cut all the tule into about 2-3 inch wide strips.
Then I cut each strip in half and fish-tailed it
(you know, fold it in half at the ends and cut on the diagonal
to make a v in the end)
You join the elastic and then put it over the chair
and tie all the tule on.
I used two colours which make very pretty tutus I think.
See? I love it! Then I wanted to make a tshirt to go with it.
So I got a picture of ballet slippers from Goggle Images
and went over it with my heat transfer pencil
(I love that thing)
I put some light interfacing on the back to stabalise it
and embroidered it with a very simple stem stitch.
I'm so happy with how these turned out.
I'm going to make some for boy pjs this week using
Now for the prize for this week...
