**Please excuse the lighting in my pictures, I started this before it got dark outside and the final picture was at bedtime. I will take some more pics of the finished skirt over the weekend in bright light.
6" x 25 yards Tulle (purchased on E-bay for $2.00 a roll (I used 5)
a book............yep a book, one that is wide enough for you to wrap the tulle around.
Wrap the tulle around the width of the book cutting only one side after the roll is completely wound on the book. I used our "colors" book as it was the perfect size we needed. This way will give you perfectly even strips for your entire project- fast too.
If you don't want to use a book, just measure the length you would like your "tutu" to be and cut strips (but the book is MUCH easier-trust me I tried the other way first)
Next take 1 of your strips, fold it in half (make this even) and where the loop is-hold that at the top and tuck it behind your bar and bring up the other 2 ends towards the front of your bar and wrap them thru the top loop. Repeat a bazillion times to get the desired fullness. Make sense? Hopefully the pics will help.
Mia was very excited to have a "Tutu" for her bed.

I think I need to re-calibrate my monitor.........hope the colors look ok on your end. The bedskirt is yellow with a few super light yellow added in here and there.
