If you are like me you have tons of scrap fabric. LOADS of them. I have an entire bind full of just scraps. Why do I keep them? Because I think I'll use them for something and honestly a part of me just can't throw them out. There are a lot of crafts out there that use your extra scraps but I never seem to make any of them because lets face it there are SOO many crafts and projects I want to do.
Then I got a great idea (again on Pinterest). Scrap tutu. Instead of tulle use your scraps. EXCELLENT! It took me about 3o min from start to finish and I love it. Elizabeth received so many compliments today on her fun skirt.
Okay here is how I made it. I cut my scraps 3 inch wide and 22 inch long. Now most of my scraps were not this long so I tied two strips together which makes a cute knot at the waist. Then I made a circle out of some thick elastic (at least 1 inch) that measured my daughter's waist. Finally I just looped the strips around the elastic pulling it tight underneath the elastic. I added a few ribbons just for fun and a bow to the front. I finished it off by trimming the scrap pieces to the length I liked on her and cut some of them at diagonals or points.
My only complaint is that the scraps get a little stringy with no hemming. I just trim them up when the fabric frays too much. I think you could fix this problem by using pinking shears which would make the scraps look super cute. Easy no sew project that your daughter will love.
