Geek Craft: Tutus

So...Halloween is coming up in a few weeks, and what a better way to get started with our Halloween crafts then to make adult sized Tutus.  These can be used underneath skirts as a petticoat type thing, or just by themselves, adding some unique flare to your superhero costume.

MATERIALS NEEDED
6-8 yards tulle (more tulle = more poof)
1 Spool ribbon (or elastic if you want it to be more strechy)
Measuring tape
Scissors

Most likely you will not finish this project during the geek craft event, HOWEVER, if you would like to possibly finish at geek craft, cut out your strips of tulle ahead of time. (Cut the strips of tulle double the length you want and 3-5 inches wide. A good tutu length is 14 inches so the tulle would be cut in 28 inch trips. (Helpful hint: Folding tulle makes it easier to cut.)

Never feel like you have to work on the project of the day, bring any project of your choosing and just hang out with like minded folk.

• Please note that Nerd HQ will also be having our weekly Dinner & Death event this night.  Once the event is posted, if you are planing on staying for at least the dinner portion of the event, please RSVP separately (CLICK HERE TO RSVP FOR DINNER) as this helps organizers keep track of how much food will need to be prepared.
