DIY Party Favors: Princess Packs

I'm putting together Princess Packs for Serenity's birthday party and I wanted to share some of the amazing tutorials I'm using to do it.

First up are the tutus. I'm making tutus based on
all the Disney Princesses! I'm not quite finished with all of them yet, I ran out of tulle! But I ordered more from Nashville Wraps, and it'll be in next week. I'll post pictures of all the completed tutus later this week!

Go check out my posts how to Satin Wrap A Tutu and how to Cut Tulle for a Tutu Using a QUICK and EASY Method. You'll find some links to different tutu making tutorials too!

This is what I have in mind for the Princess Packs - I just hope I can finish everything!


Here's a couple more adorable tutorials I found over at One Pretty Thing today that I wanted to link and share with y'all!

The Sparkly Mermaid Tail by Elegant Bloggery:

Marisa only paid $12 for
both Mermaid tails! These would be darling to sew for all the tiny guests at a Little Mermaid theme Birthday Party!

The Fairy Wand from Zakka Life:

I found this darling tutorial today and
had to share! How cute would this top look with a tutu?! You could use Disney Princess material to stick with your Princess theme too!
I just wish I could get the hang of shirring!!
I want to try one more time - by sewing this top!

The Shirred Mod Top tutorial by Sew Retro Chic

I made a cute and very easy to sew Summery Bandana Halter top that's perfect with a tutu too!

POST-IT-NOTE 2: I would like give a HUGE thank you to for linking this post!

Have fun!
