I've been through the train, superhero, sports phrase....now onto the ballerina phase. My little princess in completely in love with anything related to this subject.
I found her bedding at PBK and decided I'd try my hand at coordinating a matching tutu bed skirt. I saw one online for an astronomical price and opted not to break the bank!
This project probably costs about 5.00 maybe a bit more or less once you determine the amount of fabric you need. I just guessed! I used 4 yards and 1 roll of ribbon, oh and some glue...yep no sewing for me.
Tulle double the amount of fabric
pick a lighter color or darker color to contrast with your fabric
Now, before I begin let me just say that I should have used a different color of tulle. My tulle blends in too much. I plan to pick up a contrast color to brighten things up a bit.
Grab your handy dandy glue gun and lets get started.
Here is the fabric & tulle that I used
terrible photo...I know!
All I did was measure the fabric and the length I wanted it to hang from top to bottom and cut. I hemmed my middles and glued them together. Add my tulle along the top with glue, it should flow down pass the bottom which will give a "puffy" look
Simply added ribbon along the bottom, the satin looks really pretty. Then its ready to go between the mattress and box spring. I played around with it to get the look I wanted, then pulled down the tulle.
I really wish they had a lighter green tulle, but this was all Wally world had. I'll try to find something lighter and take a photo. Either way at least it gets the job done and at least the metal bar is covered now!
