So when you say you used 5 strips how do you get the knots to not look bulky lol. I have been researching tons of tutu tutorials but I can't find good ones and I like them super FLUFFY! When I do several pieces of tulle on one knot it looks awful!! Thank you for your response!! I ask questions all the time and get no help most of the time lol.
I haven't tried multiple tulle in one knot yet. I've only been doing 1 strand at a time with the "U" knot. Like I said, I'm picky when I do my knots, so I take my time to tug and tighten where needed. There have been times when I redo it lol. I'm not really sure how else I can explain it without posting a video.

I tried the double knot once before and it did NOT work out for me lol but I might try it again because I would think that it would be more secure than the U knot.

Are you sure that you have the No-Roll elastic? I mean, it will fold up if the tulle gets pulled tightly but not if you make snug. My first mistake with making a tulle was getting regular elastic and I was getting so mad because the slightest thing would make it fold.
