Default Re: have you ever bought tulle from here?

Step 1 lay out tulle on my table with cutting board under
Step 2 cut to desired length
step 3 cut as many pieces needed
step 4 fold piece in half cut the folded ends ( for this step I cut for pieces and stack them because my rotary can cut through about 4 well really 8 because it is doubled)
step 5 line my mat up and cut the pieces in half and cut with rotary
step 6 make tutu!!

each piece that I cut off the bolt give me 8 strips it may be slow at first but I swear this is super fast and the only way I will do it
If that works for you that's great. I've tried to use tulle on the bolt but it was too much work for me. I use 4 spools of the 6" tulle to make 1 tutu. I've gotten to the point where I can cut all 4 spools at once and it only takes me about 10-15 minutes, depending on weather my kids are around or not.(they always seem to want something as soon as I sit down to cut tulle.)
