Create your Own No-Sew Tulle Table Skirt!
It’s time to think out of the box, and create something new on our DIY Corner; a brand new feature on our blog for you, where we will share tips, tricks, and interesting new ways to use our products. As a reprise of our popular Tutu Tutorial Video we did last year, This week’s feature is a DIY Tulle Table Skirt that requires absolutely no sewing and minimal materials. Does it sound almost too good to be true? Although it does take a bit of work it, the outcome is so amazing that it will leave your guests believing that you are a crafting genius! You can also follow along our Tutu Tutorial video on youtube on how to tie the knot onto the elastic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4tUlt7xdXA Start off with your materials: 4-6 Rolls of 6in tulle (depends on how full you want the table skirt and how big your table is) elastic to fit the edge of your table scissors safety pins cardboard sheet the length of your table to the floor A Base Tablecloth (We used our Spandex Fitted Tablecloth) Step 1: Put the base tablecloth on your table and measure out the edge with the elastic band. The fit should be tight and snug. When you get the fit, safety pin the ends of the elastic and for security, safety pin the corners of the table. (Or 4 opposite points of the table if you are using a round table) Step 2: Create your tulle pieces by unwinding your tulle rolls onto the cardboard piece that is the length of how far you want the Table Skirt to hang. Keep on winding until the roll is no more. Step 3: When the cardboard is all full of tulle, cut the tulle on ONE of the ends of the cardboard. This will leave a pile of tulle that is twice the desired length of your table skirt. Step 4: Continue doing the last step with all your rolls and colors. Depending on how big your table is and how full you would like the table, you may need more rolls. For the fullness in the completed photo, we used 6 rolls of tulle for a standard rectangular table. Step 5: When all your tulle is cut, you’re ready to tie the tulle pieces onto the elastic with a slip knot. Not sure how to tie a slip knot? If the following instructions are too confusing, you can follow our youtube tutorial on No-Sew Tutus. The method is about the same. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4tUlt7xdXA Start off by folding your tulle pieces in half and slipping the tulle under the elastic on your table. If you want it fuller, you can grab more than one piece at a time. For our table skirt, we used one pink piece and one lavender piece. As the photo shows, the loop that is formed from folding the piece of tulle in half is peeking out from under the elastic. Step 6: Pull the loop over the piece of elastic, and slip the rest of the tulle that is still behind the elastic through the loop. This part may be a bit confusing, but you can see this step in detail on the youtube video linked above. Step 7: Now that the tulle has been tied onto the elastic, keep going until you reach your way all around the table. If you see the tulle get too heavy for the elastic to hold it up, safety pin the elastic to the tablecloth, and it should help support the weight. All Done!

Fabric Types and Comparisons
Often our customers ask about our fabrics. What type of fabric is suitable for your use? How do fabrics differ from each other. It is true that depending on what you’re using the fabric for, different fabrics are appropriate for different projects. Today, we will go over some of the common properties and uses of our fabric bolts. Textured Slub vs Polyester Fabric Bolt The Textured Slub is one of our newest items. It is similar to our polyester in many ways, such as the weight and the feel, however it’s weaved in a way where the yarns have a pulled and twisted effect, so there is a slight texture on the fabric; similar to what you see on silk shantung or dupioni. This twisting of the fabric is what is called slub. Our polyester is available in a plain weave with no texture, making it sturdy and easy to clean. These types of fabric are perfect for making clothing, drapes and decorations, as well as crafts, and the weight of the fabric makes it a perfect fabric for sewing. These fabrics are only available in solid colors as only. Zebra Stripes Fabric Bolt vs Leopard Spots fabric bolt vs Flocking Damask Fabric Bolt The materials for our Zebra, Leopard and Flocking Damask are practically identical. It begins with a taffeta base, and the patterns are created with velvet. The main difference for each of these different types of fabric is the pattern. These fabrics are perfect decorations and drapes. The soft and light feel of this fabric allows it to fall delicately and beautifully. Crinkle Taffeta Fabric Bolt vs Satin Fabric Both our Crinkle Taffeta and Satin are similar as in they both have a shiny finish and are of a medium weight, but the material itself is very different. The crinkle taffeta fabric bolt is made of our synthetic taffeta material, carefully pressed for a consistent “wrinkly” texture. Its shine is pretty subtle compared to the satin fabric. Our satin fabric is made with a synthetic material, where the yarns are weaved in a way where the fabric emits a nice smooth shine. Both fabrics are similar in weights and drape. If you want your evening to stand out, consider using it for an elegant table runner or sashes, or perhaps even a dress or shawl. Tulle bolt vs Organza vs Embroider vs Chiffon Fabric Bolt The common trait of these types of fabrics is that they are all sheer, and is very light in weight. Our tulle and organza bolts are both made of a nylon material. Their properties and the way they fall are perfect for making veils and petticoats. Chiffon is very much like our tulle and organza, as they are made with a similar type of synthetic material, however, this material doesn’t hold its shape as well as the tulle and organza when bunched up. It drapes easily, and is perfect for skirts, dresses and curtain panels. Our embroidered line of fabrics is basically our organza, with some flair. Same properties and weight, with an additional leaf and swirl motifs satin embroidered onto it.
