Direction to make a  no sew tutu tutorial/ Autumn Forest Nymph Tutu


Follow tutorial found on Skip To My Lou’s Blog (http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/11/01/no-sew-tutu-tutorial/) but cut away the excess elastic.


Add a bit of superglue to the knot to be sure it is held securely.


Wrap the ribbon around your finger to measure out how much ribbon will be needed to fit round the knot and still have plenty of room to pass the other length of ribbon through.


Wrap the ribbon around the knot and hot glue in place.


Be sure to keep edges of ribbon even and hold end of ribbon in glue until glue cools.


Pass the ribbon through the loop and tie into a perky little bow.


Embellish the center of the bow with a large button that has a bow of hemp tied through the center.


Gather a few different colors of Autumn colored felts.


Cut felt into approximately 2″ x 3″ rectangles.


Fold rectangle in half and cut a half leaf shape on fold.


Open to reveal leaf shape.


Repeat with additional colors of felt until you have a good assortment of felt leaves.


Place leaves all over tutu before gluing into place to be sure you have a good mix of colors and spacing.


CAREFULLY adhere using hot glue. Be careful as the glue will go right through the tulle if you aren’t careful!


Using either heavy duty scissors or a button shank remover tool, remove the button shanks from as many buttons as you glued leaves.


Carefully adhere a button to the top of each leaf on the tutu.


Finish gluing a button to each leaf to finish embellishing the entire tutu.

    The tulle doesn’t melt when you use a hot glue gun?

    That question would have to be addressed by the project’s creator, Keri Sereika.
