Tutus are short, flouncy skirts that are associated with ballerinas and dancing. You can make your own tulle skirt without having to sew any fabric. Simply cut, fold and knot strips of tulle to create a pretty skirt. A crocheted headband is a good choice for a waistband of a tutu meant for a large doll, a stuffed animal, an infant or a small child. Also, using a crocheted headband lets you reuse an old accessory to make new clothing.

  1. 1

    Measure and cut the tulle fabric into strips using a ruler and scissors. Each strip should be 6 inches wide and twice the desired length of the finished tutu.

  2. 2

    Fold one of the tulle strips in half around a section of the crocheted headband. Tie a knot in the strip using its two ends. The knot should be tightly secured in place against the headband.

  3. 3

    Continue folding and knotting tulle strips around the headband until the headband is covered. Make sure that all the strips hang down and outward. Use the scissors to trim any uneven ends.
