    To Make This Tutu You'll Need:

    Tulle - 2 Yards Of Each Color But You Probably Won't Use It All.

    Thread - I Use White
    A Clip - Optional, I Use It To Hold The Elastic Together.

@TURTLE , you could find them at a fabric store, would probably be your best bet to find the right amounts. Though you never know what pops up at your local thrift stores.

Beautiful.

Did it once, didn't want to again. That chair tip would have saved me a lot of work. I might have another crack at it.

Thanks a bunch!
