No-Sew Turkey Day Tutu Running Skirt

I'm enjoying being crafty lately! Buying fabric and sewing up new running skirts has been fun! Good thing that this small country town loves to sew, too! The options have been fun to browse for.

The Thanksgiving day Turkey Trot is soon and I already had a plan to wear my Turkey hat from last T-Day.

I wasn't crazy about the whole standard running outfit I wore, however. I didn't wear a skirt for this race!

I needed a skirt that matched my bird! I thought I should go for a camo skirt because there are so many hunters in this area. I thought on it and browsed the interwebs and decided to go with a no-sew tutu instead!

Yes! Perfect! I decided to pick colors that matched my turkey. I even took my hat into the fabric store to make sure I got a tan that matched the bird body the best. (I did 4 yards of tan fabric) I also picked a red and a yellow to match. (1 yard each of the two colors.) And then I happened to find another yard of white in the clearance bin. So about 7 yards of fabric for this skirt. The tan is the longest layer with the white the shortest. All the colors have a slight sparkle.

I can see why these are so popular! They take about an hour to make. You don't have to have a sewing machine. And they kinda hide my tummy better then some of the other skirts! 

I didn't really measure anything so its imperfect but it is poofy. The BF's mother said it looked like a Cinderella skirt and the BF said it did wind up looking like the turkey feathers. I guess the next one I make I might measure the length out a bit shorter. The tulle is a little scratchy and I am sure it would chafe in a longer run with shorts on underneath. I'm not worried about the 5K because it's gonna be cold and I will be bundled up!

I looped all the tulle around a piece of elastic that fit around my waist instead of a ribbon. I guess I was stretching out the elastic with each fabric loop strip so it was too big after I finished. I bunched up the fabric (which I have to re-adjust to even out the poof) and used a zip lock to cinch the skirt to fit. 

One of these things that you find on bags and jackets. 

 It's working out perfectly.

I wanna run around in one of these skirts everyday and not just for races! They are very girly and very fun! I'm glad that I finally got around to making one!

Tutu's - yay or nay? Have you worn or made one?


  1. ha! love your spirit girl. you GO!! just see me if you need any pockets for the FAB outfit... no sewing needed, either. YAY! :) xo, @PortaPocketGal

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
