Clothing Challenge - Unplug Your Kids

Last Weeks challenge at Unplug Your Kids was Clothing

As usual the inspiration came totally last minute :) We found some stretchy netting type material (left over from my wedding 10 years ago!! we decorated with about 20 metres of the stuff!!) and decided to make No Sew Tutu's for some of our stuffed animals. I am sure everyone knows about No Sew Tutu's but here is a Tutorial at Kidley if you want to see how.

Get your toys, Tulle (or like material, piece of elastic


Cut into strips and tie strips around the elastic

*My material was quite stretchy and slippery.. I didn't realise how hard it would be for my 6 year old to tie knots (considering all the knots in their skipping ropes, string etc around the house) see her cute tongue sticking out in concentration?
As I side note this made me remember that both my girls don't know how to tie shoelaces!! embarrassing much?? so I think that is the next thing to practice.. they just have never worn laced shoes.. it is so hot here and their school has laxed rules about shoes.. they wear crocs and sandles and that is about it!!

Modelling the animals new Tutu's made entirely by them!!

I love the No Sew part to these tutus. And as I write this Little Chef came out and said "Do you like the tutu i'm wearing?" Yeah, i'm gonna have to give this one a go know!

That's so clever! I've never seen no-sew tutus before. I wish I had known that trick when my girls were little.
