Default Re: how much tulle...

I only use tulle by the bolt. I tried by the roll one time and I hated it. It took forever! I am usually making 2 or 3 tutus at one time so I do everything in stages. I can cut all of my tulle for 3 tutus in about 10-15 minutes. I first cut my length so if I am making a 12-24months I cut it at 20 inches and I cut 9 20 inch pieces then I fold the 54x20 piece I just cut in half cut down the sides and then I have 4 smaller pieces stacked I do this for all 9 pieces so that gives me 36 pieces I then take my rotary cutter and cut straight down the middle of the 36 pieces (all at one time I love my rotary cutter) and then I am all done cutting I have 72 pieces and I am ready to make my tutu I do two pieces together to make it more full. I hope some of this makes sense I suck at explaining
