It's SOOOOO Fluffy!

Hello my fellow bloggers and readers, I wanted to share this adorable little tutu I made for my little granddaughter, granted it's probably a tad too big for her to wear at only 3 months old but I wanted her to have it when she would be ready to wear it.

This is a no sew tutu, easy peasy! I bought a premade crotched headband from JoAnn's and used about 2-1/2 rolls of 6" wide tuille. I say 2 1/2 because I started with a roll that I had already used for other projects and then bought 2 more but I didn't use all of it, but close to half I would say. 

I then cut the toile in 14 inch strips. I folded my headband in half and placed it onto a roll of paper towels. Then using 4 cut pieces of toile I began feeding them through the holes and tying a Lark's head knot. Basically in every other hole so there were two rows when all was said and done.
Here is my end result and unfortunately I do not have a cute little toddler to model it for you but I think you will get the idea.

Here you can see the rows of knots

And to give you a better size perspective
