Thursday Leftovers: Tulle Ballerina Skirt with Ribbon

SAVE MONEY.  DIY.

I’ve done some previous posts on making a ballerina skirt and no-sew fairy skirt.  I made a ballerina skirt for a friend who is having a baby girl.  This time I decided to do some experimenting and add a little pizazz to the ballerina skirt.

I thought the skirt turned out great and from now on all my ballerina skirts will have bows on them!   Oh, and I couldn’t resist making a matching tulle flower headband to top off the outfit!

Supplies:
  • tulle
  • elastic
  • fabric glue
  • sewing machine
  • ribbon
  • sequins
  • headband
  • felt
Game Plan:

1.  Follow the instructions for my post on making a ballerina skirt.

2.  Attach sequins to ballerina skirt with fabric glue.

3.  Tie a bow out of ribbon and make it however long and big you would like it to be.

4.  Hand-sew the ribbon bow to the tulle skirt.

5.  For the headband, follow my instructions for making a rolled fabric flower headband but use tulle instead.

6.  Use fabric glue to attach sequins.

I personally think I liked the headband BEFORE I added sequins and when I do this project again, I think I’ll just put one sequins in the middle.
