Christmas in July Guest Danielle from Blissful and Domestic

Today Danielle is going to show us a fabulous tutu tutorial!!
Hi Lovelies! I am Danielle, from Blissful and Domestic,
and I am super excited to be here today. I am a
crafter, sewer, organizer, mamma, and wife. I wear many hats.

Today’s tutorial is lovingly titled Fancy Nancy Splendiferous

Christmas Tutu Tutorial
It is inspired by a very fancy little red head…
Can you guess who?

Well of course Fancy Nancy!

Who doesn’t love Fancy Nancy?

She is just too dang cute!Photobucket


I mean with her feathers and glitter, how could any little girl not want to dress like her?I
know my little girl loves her. Every Christmas she asks for Fancy
things to add to her dress up collection. I know this year will be no


This being said I knew I needed to create something fantastically, splendiferous for my Miss Priss. We decided on a Splendiferous Christmas Tutu.


I started out with A LOT of white tulle and some red velvet Chirstmas Ribbon.Photobucket


I also got my drink of choice, measuring tape, and ipod ready to go.

Every girl needs to listen to Glee while crafting.

I heard that somewhere…I swear.Photobucket

My tulle was folded in half and was 22 inches wide.

I cut strips that were 32 inches long. Once those strips were cut,
I opened them up (no longer folded in half) and cut them down the middle.
I then ended up with about 28 strips of tulle.
You may need more or less depending on the size of tutu you are making.
I made mine for my daughter, who wears a 5t and waist measurement is 22 inches.
You will cut your ribbon 60 in.
This allows for a nice big bow in the back.

PhotobucketYou will have A LOT of strips


Take each strip and fold it in half


Now with your tulle, tie it in a slip knot onto your ribbon.Photobucket





Continue doing this with each strip.



you have finished tying your tulle, try it on your little girl and even
up the strips. I like mine a bit uneven. It gives it a fuller feel, but
go with what you like.


Once your tutu is finished take your little girl out for some quality picture time.

Just think how splendiferous your Christmas cards would be with your little girl in one of these fancy tutus.



I hope you all enjoyed this Fancy Tutorial.

Everything was inspired by this Fabulous book.Fancy Nancy: Splendiferous Christmas
