i might’ve gone a little overboard and bought a WHOLE LOT of tulle. we’re talking MILES of tulle here, people. this little project today uses 14 entire feet of it. i might need to make a few (dozen) more. =D
little puffy balls! here’s how.
the tulle i have is about 6″ wide. i cut 1 piece of each color to measure about 2 feet (actually, 2x the width of my laptop, if you want to be exact)
i folded each piece in half, and cut down the middle. now you have 2 strips to make 2 ballies.
i’m an eyeballer and a pretty good cutter, so i didn’t measure i just hacked at it. it doesn’t have to be exact, i promise.
unfold each piece and do a running stitch all the way down the middle. again, don’t be terribly exact, don’t freak if it meanders a little.
pull the tulle tight on the tread and it’ll start to resemble what you want the end product to look like:
take the 2 long ends and tie a tight knot. trim the ends – if you’re going to tie it to something, leave a long tail. if you’re going to string them, trim the tails way down.
to make the little bunting, poke a threaded needle through the center of each one to put them on a line. squoosh em together, push them apart, stick em in a bowl, they are SO CUTE!
i want to make enough to roll around in them. heavens knows i have enough tulle!
