Quick and easy no sew tutu method I use to turn my crochet doll into a ballerina or princess. If you are interested in the crochet doll pattern you can find it here.
- Cardboard, CD/DVD case, book (anything to wrap tulle around that will give you desired length)
Wrap tulle around item that will give you desired length, I use an old piece of cardboard that gives me strips that are about 9 1/2″ long unfolded. If you want you tutu to be longer you can use the cardboard length wise or use a book. The size I use works well for my crochet dolls.
Cut tulle along one side, you will now have several strips that you can use for tutu. (Note that the tulle I am using is a smaller spool if you are using one of the larger spools of tulle you can simply wrap length wise to get the same effect.
Measure ribbon around doll’s waist and tie in neat snug bow. You want the ribbon to be snug around dolls waist but not super tight.
Fold tulle in half and insert under ribbon
Pull ends through hole at top of tulle and pull tightly forming a knot around ribbon
Continue knotting tulle around ribbon until it is at your desired fullness. I normally keep going until I can’t move the tulle along the ribbon.
That’s it, quick and easy no sew doll tutu. If you have any questions or comments feel free to leave them below. If you need the pattern for the doll you can find it here.
