How to Wrap a Tutu?

Matilda is going to a friend's 3rd Birthday Party tomorrow and I decided to partially make the gift for her friend - inspired by this tutorial! Here's the result...


I'm not really sure about it but I think a 3 year old would love it!


I made it with nylon netting rather than tulle since there was a bigger colour range (and it was half the price of tulle), but then the knot with netting was too bulky so I had to resort to using some white ribbon in my stash.


We're also putting in some hair accesories so a bit of a girlie girl present - hope you like it Carys! Now I just have to work out how to wrap a tutu!!

In my experience, she'll love it. Good colours too. I've never tried the knotted version, but it looks easier than endless gathering.
