Default Re: Bolt Tulle - how to cut?

For me one piece is usually about 22 inches which would make it 11 inches folded in half for a tutu.
It is not that hard at all. I can cut enough for 1 tutu in 2.5 minutes. First determine the length of the tutu. If you want a 10 inch then you would double that and add 2inches for the knot so measure out 22 inches off tulle and cut. Cut the edges of the tulle and then fold over width way and cut the edges again. You will then have 8 22 inch strips.
