Are you tearing the same fabric or trying different ones? Start at the top and tear down, often fabric isn't cut straight so I always tear the first strip and throw it in my spare scraps basket (to do something with some day) and from there on my tears are straight. You can cut the fabric also, it will still fray, tearing it is just quicker!
