  • How to Make a No-Sew Ballerina Tulle Skirt

    no sew tulle skirt
    I saw these tulle skirts selling at Walmart and other stores for $15-$100, I thought to myself I definitely can make a tulle skirt. So here is my easy to make NO sew instructions. You will need the following
    ~ 2-3 yards of tulle for a baby/ toddler size skirt, I used gold and pale pink
    ~Sharp Sewing Scissors, dull or craft scissors stick to the tulle and don’t cut
    ~ 1 yard ribbon to tie a bow at the back
    ~ a 20″ piece of 1/8″ wide elastic
    First, iron the tulle on the lowest setting, this was very fast and helped keep the pieces easy to cut. Next cut 36 pieces of tulle, 4.5″ wide x 24″ long. I took the 20″ piece of elastic and carefully tied it to my daughter’s waist making it firm but not tight. Next, I took 2 of the pieces of tulle, grabbed them both in the middle and carefully looped them around the top of the elastic, in the very center, and pulled the ends through the loop (Like attaching a string to a tag). I continued to make loops of tulle around the skirt until it completely covered the elastic band. The last step is to trim it to the length that you want, and add a bow at the back. Voila!

  • Pink and Blue Toile Cards

    Claire Selby Cards

    I just finished some French inspired Pink and Blue toile cards today for my Mum in Law! I used Rubber stamped images from Somerset Studio and Stampin’ Up on each card. I also adore the retired Country Living cards by Stampin’ Up, I used those for the 3 smaller cards. Thank you Carol and I hope you enjoy these!
