Sweet Scrap Tutu

THIS was one of my first "pins" via Pinterest.
It wasn't a tutorial, just a photo of a DARLING little girls scrap fabric tutu.  I fell in love!  Had to make one!  Since I have no little girls of my own I jump on opportunities to make gifts for girls.  This year I get to exchange Christmas presents with my brothers family.  They have 3 girls and another on the way.. WOOT!! You know what that means... it is a scrap tutu factory over here! 

I am making 3 different skirts with 3 matching skirts for the Disney Princess dolls the girls are getting from Santa.  They are going to be SO cute.  I am using lots of vintage sheets and pillowcase fabrics that I already have on hand.  One of the best parts to making these was picking out all the fun fabric I FINALLY get to use!  These sheets have been sitting in my closet forever, it felt so nice for my scissors to meet them. 

I can't wait to see them wearing them.  I already made both my boys try them on so I could see how they looked... that didn't go over so well =)

What an adorable idea! My little one is getting a Bitty Baby for Christmas, I just might make her, and her new doll a scrap tutu for the new year!
Merry Christmas to you and your family!

Love the use of elastic instead of twine or fabric.
