Tutorial: Gathered tulle veil attached to a barrette

Tutorial: Gathered tulle veil attached to a  barretteDeanna from Sew McCool had sticker shock when she saw how much the veils for her daughter’s First Communion cost.  $175 – $300!!  Luckily, she’s handy with a thread and needle and so she was able to make one herself for a fraction of that.  She shares a tutorial showing how she did it.  The simple gathered tulle veil could also work as a bridal veil.    She attached hers to a barrette so it would stay put in her daughter’s hair, but you could also attach it to a comb if you like.   Go to Sew McCool for the tutorial.

    I made the veil for my daughter’s wedding. It really was quite simple and no one guessed that it was ‘homemade’.
