1 Jelly Roll Cuzco from Kate Spain (or leftover strips from another)
1/2″ wide elastic cut to 16″ for 3-6 month old girl (see below for other sizes)
Hot glue if you don’t want to sew!
Leggings or diaper cover for underneath
Step 1: Measurements
This Tu-Tu is easily to make custom for your little one. Take measurement around the waist where you want the skirt to lay and add 2.5″. This accounts for the seam and the extra bulk of the ties around the waist. If you don’t have a child available you can measure around the waist of the leggings or diaper cover. The next measurement you need is from the waist to where you want the skirt to hit on the leg. Multiply that by 2 and add 2″ to account for the knot.
Here are the numbers I have for a 3-6 month size:
Waist: 16″ + 2.5″= 18.5″ cut of elastic
Length: 6″ x 2= 12″ + 2″= 14″ strip cut from the jelly roll
Step 2: Cutting
Now that we’ve got your numbers let’s begin! Begin by cutting your elastic and making it one continuous loop. You can do this by either sewing it, hand stitching or a hot glue gun. The overlap should be about 1/2″.
A super sweet, scrappy and sassy little Tu-Tu!
