Make Tutu Waistband
Measure child's waist then transfer that measurement to black elastic band (Image 1). Mark with a pencil then cut band at marked line. Cut two 20-inch pieces of black ribbon then fold one ribbon over each end of elastic band (Image 2). Pin to secure then sew (Image 3).
Cut black tulle into pieces that are approximately 25 to 30 inches wide with sharp scissors, varying the lengths to give the tutu a jagged edge (Image 1). Roll tulle, measure, then cut in three-inch sections (Images 2 and 3). Set aside one 25- to 30-inch-wide piece of 3-inch wide tulle to embellish hat. Next, cut strips in half by folding lengthwise and cutting at fold (Image 4). Finally, cut all ends at an angle to emphasize the jagged look (Image 5).
Stack 2-4 strips of tulle together and fold in half to form a loop (Image 1). Wrap loop around elastic band and pull ends through loop's center to attach the tulle strips to the elastic (Image 2). Repeat with remaining strips, sliding them close together, until the entire elastic band is covered.
