Take 2 feet of ribbon and 6 yards of tulle cut into 3 by 12 inch strips. Fold in half to 6 inches and loop around ribbon. These sell for $30, I made for $5.85.

She is so cute! and your photo shot taken looking down at her makes her look like a flower, much like anne geddes pictures she takes, great shot, pretty tutu too.
Be honest Amy, you wanted to show off your beautiful little girl. Don't blame you , and "sewing" tip isn't bad either. lesley uk
Your little "model" is adorable and so is the tutu.
Tutu: Good price
Cutie wearing Tutu: Priceless!
My first thought oh what an adorable flower! She is a cutie and looks like a precious one. A very nice photo. Thank you for tip.
I have a teenager who loves tutus. Help me figure out how to make an adult size one with several layers. They are sold at stores for big bucks but I know I can make one for much less and customize it in the school colors.
First you have a gorgeous model. I have made a couple tutus myself. If you use Elastic instead of Ribbon they last longer and you don't even have to sew just use staples. I also double the tulle to make it puffier!
