Question Tulle for Tutu's

Hey all! I've just started making tutu's and I'm torn between cutting tulle off of spools or bolts. I actually like the tulle on the bolts. To me, it has a better feel to it. Would anybody be willing to share an easy way to cut the tulle off of the bolts? Maybe what works best for you?? Right now, it's taking me about 30+ minutes to cut up about 10yards off of a bolt! TERRIBLE, I know! I just can't get it figured out!

Also, where is a great place to buy? I usually buy Hobby Lobby but would love to buy online.

Yeah, but if you are going to be making a lot of them, tt's not practical or time efficient to use the bolt....maybe if you want to embellish your "spool tulle" a bit. I wouldn't have a business if I was cutting tulle off of bolt. I did it once and I swore I would never do it again for anybody.

The very few times I will do it off the bolt I roll mine up and then cut 4-6 inch strips, that way you can cut yards and yards with one quick cut. It doesn't take very long for me to do it but I honestly don't think the bolt tulle holds its shape as well as the rolls of tulle.

Thanks so much for the advice. I'm new to the tutu world and was just hoping some others could weigh in on the subject. I guess I just like the softer feel of the bolt tulle. I haven't found any rolls that feel that way. I've been buying them from Hobby Lobby and I'm sure they're not "top of the line" tulle.

Make sure your paying attention to what kind you are buying as well. Hobby Lobby has 2 different kinds of tulle on spools Polyester and Nylon same price but one is softer than the other. Same probably goes for their tulle on the bolt as well. Ive been looking at wholesale tulle providers online all day and www.bbcrafts.com seems to be the cheapest for rolls of tulle 100yards is only around $4 and the 25 yarders are less than a $1 a piece. Im not sure of their quality though because Ive never ordered from them but Im planning too soon. It seems like you pay a bit for shipping though, ground rate through fed ex for me was $10 for a package just over a pound, but cheaper than gas for me to drive to a hobby lobby (or any craft store since I do not have one local).
