This is one of those projects that I started and then it ended up sitting in the closet for over a year!!! Crazy I know - because it was so easy I have no clue why I waited so long! I still have one more to make so hopefully it won't take me another year to get that one completed!!!

Go on over to Brown Paper Packages for a more detailed and complete tutorial. Even though I followed her directions mine turned out very scrunchy looking - anyone know what I did wrong? Either way they're still cute and the princess loves hers - it's been a staple in our wardrobe these days!


- 1 inch elastic - as long as you need to fit desired waist

- tulle (I divided it up among 3 different colors. I think I got about 1/2 - 1 yard of each) - you may need to adjust how much tulle you need depending on the size you're making.


1. Cut elastic to fit waist and stitch ends together by hand or using a sewing machine.

2. Cut tulle into strips - I think mine we're only about 1 1/2 inches wide and the length of the tulle.

3. Tie pieces of tulle around elastic until you reach desired fluffiness.

Have Fun!


  1. I have been making them and the first few I made looked the same way. I got my tulle from walmart first then I got some at a craft store on a roll and they looked much better. Good luck they are fun and once you start you just keep going.
