Tutu Bed Skirt


I remember talking to one of my friends about bed skirts and she mentioned using tulle and making a ballerina bed skirt.  So I decided to give it a try!  

I used an old bed skirt that I had already, but didn't use, and cut the skirt part off so I just had the rectangle part.  I bought a couple yards of pink tulle and cut it into strips the length of the end of the mattress to the floor plus an inch or two.  I wanted it to drag on the floor a little.

Then I gathered the tulle and sewed it onto the rectangle piece.  I actually did two layers of tulle on each side to give it a more fuller look!




Just a word of caution:  Don't get the vacuum too close to the bed skirt!  My vacuum likes to suck up the tulle like it's going out of style!



I bought the crib sheet on clearance at Target.  It is actually a "boy" crib sheet, but it matched perfectly with my other daughter's bedding (also from Target).

How stinkin' cute! This is too adorably girly. I just might have to give it a try. The current crib-bedskirt situation is kind of a mess, ha. Stopping by way of a linky party.

Carrie @ My Favorite Finds said...

So glad I came across this. I have a large tutu I had made to go around the gift table for my daughter's birthday last month, and I have been hesitating/putting off/crafting something in my mind with ALL the tulle I used for it. I'm just going to put it around her crib for a bedskirt! Perfect!

Angela @ The Not So Functional Housewife said...

Your decorating skills are mad. I love both your daughters beds. The princess skirt dust ruffle is about the cutest thing in the world. So awesome that you made it and you did a fabulous job too. I think it was smart to do two fuller layers. It is definitely made for a princess. Thanks for sharing at Monday Madness.

Carmen said...
