Default How long foes it take you?

To cut all the tulle for your tutus? I have been making tutus for over 2 years now and just learned about 6 months ago a faster way to cut. I am thinking of making a video to sell and just wanted to see if there would be a need for it. Also do you use tulle by the bolt or rolls? Thanks!

LOL how long DOES I can't type

It doesn't take me long at all. I made templates out of boxes, wrap the tulle around the template, slide my scissors in to the slot between the two pieces of box and cut. Makes them all very similar in length and quick

that is smart! Do you use the roll then? I only use tulle by the bolt. I buy the whole bolt and it is a lot cheaper I think. I just timed it and it took me 2 minutes and 30 seconds to cut a little over 6 yards for a whole tutu. I have heard of fast ways for people using the rolls of tulle but never anything by the bolt.

I might actually do it if I could figure a better way, I would LOVE to be able to roll it and have it in the right LENGTH as well as WIDTH when I cut it

I've been making them off the bolt, too. It doesn't take me long. I don't know how long, but no long. I just cut it in strips with a rotary cutter & then cut them to the length I need. If that makes sense... it's easy peasy though!
