I followed the instructions for the peacock "feathers" to a T. I sort of free handed the shapes onto the felt. I attached them to blue ribbon with pins and tied the ribbon to the tutu. I like that it's not permanent because she loves this tutu and after tomorrow I can take the feathers off and she can wear it for dress up, which tends to happen on Sundays during Patriots games. Don't ask me why.

Super easy felt feathers.
My knots aren't perfect but close enough. I see more of these no-sew tutus in my future.
For my first tutu, I'd say it came out pretty great! I love it and so does Genevieve. Here are a few more photos:
In case you're wondering, the T-shirt came from Wal-Mart. I added a leftover strip of cobalt blue tulle to the front of it. The wings are from Dollar General (which became obvious by the way they wouldn't stay upright!), the felt was from Micheal's and Hobby Lobby (cheaper at H.L.), and the peacock feathers were from Hobby Lobby. I've had the feather-y headband forever.
So what's your kid going to be this year? And did you make it or buy it?
