Make A Coffee Filtter Princess Tutu For Your Dolls
To make your own you will need:
-three coffee filters ( I used the kind I found at the dollar store)
-Rit Dye (I used Cherry Red and Purple)
-Duct Tape ( I get mine at www.consumercrafts.com)
-A Button ( I use Laura Kelly Buttons from Buttons Galore & More)
- A needle and thread
- A roll of Tulle
-Your Doll Today I used my Springfield Doll Madison
-A Measuring tape
Step 2- Once dry I selected two coffee filters and folded them in half. then I cut along the edge giving me 4 half circles. I only needed three for my tutu but you can add the fourth if you would like.
Step 3- Cut 12 inches of duct tape from your roll and lay the tape sticky side up on the table.
Step 5- Once the coffee filters are in place, unroll and cut 36 inches of tulle from the roll. Gather with your fingers and press into place half way up from the bottom edge and all along the length of the tape.
Step 7- On one edge of the tape waist band measure 1 inch in from the raw edge and sew your button into place. Once secure us a stitch ripper to make a button hole one inch in from the opposite raw edge of the tape waist band.
You can do so much with Rit Dye and so many wonderful things with coffee filters. I hope you enjoyed today's craft and that you will give dye crafts a try! Like me I know you are going to get hooked!
