My New Thing - Week 33

This week I got crafty… I was talking to a friend and fellow Auburn fan about the season and mentioned how I needed to make a trip to buy the girls their gameday outfits for this season. She told me about the tutu that she had made her girls and showed me the picture… I was sold. I went to the store bought the tulle and made my girls their skirts.

It’s a super easy, no sew method. I took one of my elastic head bands to use for the waist, measured the length from waist to about knee (double it) tie it in double knots (or slips knots) alternating colors. I’ve seen these done and knew friends that had done them, I just never thought to use team colors.. Super cute gameday outfits!

I almost spent $40 on tutus at TJ Maxx this weekend. I would have felt pretty stupid about that right now had I completed the purchase. Adorable! And "no-sew" is my kind of crafting.

CUTE! My Mom made one of these tutus for Ali a few months back. She loves it! Obviously it's not orange and blue, but that is awesome for gameday!!
