I made the cutest Tutu for Grandbaby no: 1
What is is about Tutu's that make them incredibly cute. I wish I could wear one, but I would look a wee bit odd, at my time of life! Think, Mavis.
Anyhoo, this one is pink, frilly and perfect for a little girl who is just starting dancing lessons.
So, I crochet the waistband in a pink DMC Natura Cotton with a 3mm hook, I crocheted it over a band of thick elastic for sturdyness.
Then added a picot fan edging to make it look pretty.
The Tulle is added to the loops created, I only added two layers of Tulle, but I did enough loops for a third layer, so if she ever wants the Tutu "puffier" I can add the third layer easily.
It fit beautifully, and will look super cute on the dancefloor, don't you think?
I lent it to Hobbycraft, Carlisle for their display, looks quite good like this!
