Tulle Fabric Product Guide

Tulle is a lightweight and sheer material that is great for decorations, like table skirts, draping, and chair sashes. It can also be used for prom dresses, bridal veils and wedding gowns. Tulle does not fray so it is great for no sew projects. Tulle is also popular for fashion apparel, such as dresses, over skirts, and tutus.

One of our favorite projects involving tulle though were some kitchen scrubbies that made really great gifts are were super fun to make.

No matter the occasion, tulle can be used to make a range of decorations or apparel that are not only beautiful, but also affordable.
