I spent 3 bucks or so on my first one, but it was small she was only 6wks old but had left overs.That including buying a thing of ribbon to tie it with.

I was told 3 yards of tulle and a yard here at walmart costs 1.17.



Then depending on ribbon or elastic, I'm going to use elastic and a cut of ribbon for a bow..



I can get several feet of elastic for 99c..



And a cut of ribbon for.. ?



I'd still say...



Cheaper than buying one for 30-60 bucks by far.....it's ridiculous how much people sell them for!

I make mine differently.
I use about 50 yards of tulle on an infant/toddler tutu.
