How to Make a Tutu Skirt

We’ve all seen the adorable fluffy tulle tutu skirts that toddlers wear at their birthday party or in their birthday photos.  In my newest video tutorial I am going to show you how I made the adorable tutu skirt that you see in the below photos.  I made this tutu skirt for Miss Nyla’s birthday photos and to wear at her birthday. So, believe me when I tell you that it is super easy to make. View this blog post here if you want to see how I made the matching birthday hat.

Nyla First Birthday Photo Session

Her entire birthday outfit was a big hit at her birthday party and I heard so many of the guests complimenting on how cute she looked in her outfit. I went with purple and turquoise colors because her party was mermaid themed. You can make the tulle skirt just a solid color by using only one color instead of 3 as I did.  By the way, these can be made for any size, buy just adjusting the waist size and the length of the tulle strands. So, for those 40 year old lovely women that are doing the cake smash sessions can make their own skirt too!

Tulle 6″ width
Elastic 1/2″ Width
Needle & thread

For the elastic waist I do recommend measuring the waist and adding an 1″ for overlap when sewing. If you are unable to measure waist then below is a size guide to help you.

Jasper’s Puppy Birthday Party

My sweet Jasper turned a year old and I did his birthday photos, which you can see in my previous blog post, but we also had a little puppy birthday party for him!  His aunt, pup cousin and grandpa came to help celebrate.

I made a few party decorations for him that turned out pretty cute. I made the “Happy Birthday” banner you see in the photos below, colorful pennant banner and paw print napkin rings. Also, I made him his own birthday party hat and I can’t forget about the party balloons. Every birthday party needs party balloons. I should have the birthday banner and a few other matching instant download birthday coordinates in my shop soon.  It’s just a matter of getting pictures and getting them uploaded.

Pupcake Recipe (Makes 12)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup old-fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup of shredded carrots
1 banana
1 large egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 – 8oz low fat cream cheese
1 cup of peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit. Line a cupcake/muffin tin with 12 cupcake liners. Place all ingredients into bowl and mix until mixed together.  Spoon evenly the mixture into the cupcake liners. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until a inserted toothpick comes clean.

Frosting: Place cream cheese and peanut butter into bowl and mix together until mixed together. Place frosting into piping bag with large star tip and pipe on to the pupcakes. Decorate with your dogs favorite treat.

These may not be too appealing to the human guests but the dogs love them! You can store any leftovers in a freezer bag for up to a month. Remove and thaw before giving to dog.
