Pink Zebra Print No Sew Tutu Tutorial and Always Under Pay Giveaway


Lou Lou and her Tu Tu

Warning: Cute picture overload is about to begin.

Disclaimer: I received the materials to complete this project from Always Under Pay for free. All opinions are my own. 



Lou Lou is just the type of girl that was in need of a poofy frilly tutu. This baby was made for the frilly side of life. She was born to be a diva. She is my little girly girl. Bear is my tom boy and Lou is my girly girl, I have the best of both sides and I love them both.
 I have been wanting to make on of these but thought it was going to be too time consuming and in my ever busy schedule free time didn’t ever seem to materialize to try. I decided to give it a go this weekend after receiving my package from Always Under Pay. I needed a push and the beautiful zebra print tulle was the push I needed. It didn’t take long at all, I had it made in a little over an hour of work time. It turned out lovely! I’m so glad I got it made for these pictures.


These tutus are very easy to make yourself and they are a lot cheaper than purchasing one already made.
The tulle runs at 2.29 a tube, elastic 1.99, and ribbon at .69.
That comes to around 13 dollars with tax.


Pink Zebra Print No Sew Tutu

Materials List:

3 Rolls of Tulle
(different colors or the same color depending on the look you want)
1 pack of 1/8 inch Elastic
Around a yard of matching ribbon
Step 1: Measure out your tulle. Keep in mind that you will be folding it in half so measure out twice as long as you want it to be. I did two sizes. I made a layer that was 12 inches long and another that was around 18 inches long.
Step 2: Cut your elastic to fit around child’s waist loosely. You don’t want them pulling at it because it’s to tight but you don’t want it so loose it falls off. After you measure and cut, tie the ends together. Find something you can use to hold the elastic such as a roll of paper towels or 2 liter bottle. I used my daughter’s huge pig stuffed animal.
Step 3: Pick three pieces of tulle and fold them in the middle. Slide them under the elastic pulling up a loop. Take the loop and pull the ends of the tulle over the elastic and through the loop while increasing the elastic in a knot. Pull semi-tightly. Continue on all the way around. Do not make them too close together or you will stretch out your elastic and it will not stay on your child’s waist. Just kinda slide them to where they touch but are not squished.
Step 4: (optional) Take your matching ribbon and weave around the elastic and tulle knots to cover everything up. Tie the ends together and your done!
Now take your little one out in her new tutu and snap some adorable pictures!
