Check out this post and other crafty inspiration over at our new blog!
Good Morning and Happy Laaaazzzy Sunday. Sorry for the late post today, but it’s a cute one! Today we are celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month! I am fortunate to work for an employer who understands the importance and value of giving back to our community. This coming Saturday we are participating in the Making Strides for Breast Cancer Walk — how exciting! As a known crafter to my co-workers, I volunteered to give tutu making lessons — how exciting (again)! So this past Thursday a few of us got together and threw some pink tulle around, and here were the results!
So how did we make these awesome tutus? Most of the credit goes to Just Add A Bow‘s video on YouTube. She has a ton of useful video’s that offer her tips of the trade. You can also check out her Facebook fan page. Here are the basic supplies that you will need:
Tulle (any color). I prefer rolls of tulle over purchasing it by the yard, it’s much easier to cut and manage as a roll.
I’m also a paper crafter, so I have a nifty straight edge cutter that makes it super easy to feed the tulle through, measure the length and cut.
Don’t forget as you’re working on it, it’s much easier to loop it round your thigh.
This is what your first layer will look like, depending on if you choose a pattern or a solid color. You can do as many layers as you like. I prefer at least two, just to make it full and fluffy.
So what crafts have you done to celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness? Do you have any THINK PINK ideas to share with the group?
