Tulle, anyone??

Remember my dis-a-ster of a craft room??  I'm close to my goal of having it clean - it's actually clean, but I want it to be cute (some decor, etc) before I show it off to you - but here's a sneak peak...

Folded fabric - - 

 Organized buckets of junk- -
 And the floor, oh how I've missed seeing you - -


If you'll remember, disaster stage was cause in part when my mom got rid of tons of tulle - that I of course couldn't see go to waste (it's everywhere - see the dresser drawers exploding it, the tubs full of it, bolts of it wrapped, and there are a couple of more tubs off camera that aren't pictured) - -
So that's when I knew it was time to start creating.  I made a bunch of those tulle dress-up shirt things I posted about yesterday.  And then when I had playgroup at my house, other moms had a spontaneous tutu making party - just cut it in strips and tie them onto one long, larger strip (that worked as a tie around the waist).  Super easy, and look how cute they turned out:

So, I have lots and lots more, ready to be used.  Anyone out there have a tulle project I need to tackle???

I'm very curious--why did your mother have so much tulle?

I made my daughter a crib skirt, matching valance and a hair bow clippy holder thing out of tulle. Her room is ballerina themed. :) I LOVE tulle. I hope she does too! Haha.

Oh fun!! I wish I could inherit a huge load of tulle! :)

I'm doing the exact same thing today! What did you use to organize your fabric? I'm trying to decide if I should just chop up some cardboard or spring for actual fabric holders? Your room looks great!
