A few years ago I made a tutu for my niece's second birthday. Obviously she has outgrown that one but a few months ago she asked me to make her a new one. She wanted one like Angelina Ballerina's friend (I have boys who have no interest in the show so I have no idea what her name is). I followed the same pattern as before but obviously made it wider and longer. I varied the length slightly between 13-15 inches long (so I cut the strips between 27-29 inches) to give it a little bit of depth.
I forgot that the increased width and length would really add up. I went through just under four rolls of tulle! But what fun - I kind of want one for me!
I packaged it up with two books to create a nice little gift.
Happy birthday to one of my favorite five year olds!
