being MVP: American Girl Pet Dog Tutu Tutorial #FunCraftsWithMom

American Girl Pet Dog Tutu Tutorial #FunCraftsWithMom

Kenzie has been asking for accessories for her American Girl Fancy Pomeranian Pet for several months now. Her new pet came with a book which had instructions so I finally decided to tackle her demands and started with the tutu. It's a very simple technique that can even be re-sized to create a matching tutu for your little girl!



1.  Cut the pink tulle to double the length you want the finished tutu to be. Our pieces were about 5.5 inches long.

2.  Fold the tulle in half to create a loop on one end. 

3.  Place over the ponytail band and pull the ends of the tulle through the loop and pull to tighten.

4.  Repeat step 3 until you are about 3/4 of the way around the band. Note that you can complete to create a full circle however since you can't see underneath the pet dog, I thought it would look nicer without a full circle.

5.  Select a few of the gemstone embellishments for your tutu and stick to your heart's desire!

6.  Slip onto your American Girl Pet Dog and voila - she's a princess in the making.

  1. This is a very cute pet tutorial! I like the pink tutu and it looks so pretty on this pet dog. My niece would love to make this craft soon!

  2. So cute! I'm not great with sewing so I love finding crafts like this. I'd love to try to make one for my daughter. :)

  3. Okay, this might just be "the" most adorable thing I have seen in quite some time. I have a niece that just loves to dress up like a ballerina almost every single day. Heaven forbid her tutu is not available. She also loves to make up her dolls and stuffed animals in everything from paper towels to doll clothes. She would love this.

  4. Cutest little doggy tutu ever!! Omgosh just adorable!! You are such a great mom for doing it!!
