Default Bolt Tulle - how to cut?

I have only used 6" rolls, but I found it on bolt today - cheap!! A Walmart I was at is taking out the fabric so it was 50% off. Anyway, how do you cut it into 6" pieces? Do you have a method or something that is easy? Thanks!!

Its on the roll doubled....i just roll it out and cut it in big chunks then on the ends slide my sharp scissors down the sides. On the side where it is folded to be doubled I just use the scissors and cut it there. I then roll it and cut in 6 inch pieces. It takes time, but I get alot off one bolt. For me one piece is usually about 22 inches which would make it 11 inches folded in half for a tutu.

eeeekkk.. Bolt of tulle scare me! I alway buy on the spool even though the bolt is much cheaper.. I needed some tulle for the bottom of a dress when i was at a fabric store and the lady there actually cut it the length and width I needed it. It was sad... ha

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.

I cut enough for more than one tutu at a time....maybe that why it sounds so hard...its not hard at all. I see what Yvonne is saying though.

I bring mine to work and have one of my co-workers help me fold it and then I use the paper cutter and I have 6" stips in NO TIME.. then I can go home and wrap it around a book or whatever to cut the size strips I need.... That being said I've only bought it on the bolt once.

Actually all Walmarts are doing away with the fabric section. The one I was in was just in Ohio (about 2 hours from my house). They are actually a test store for precuts - so I was told by the associate. It is the only store I have seen with them. My stores that are close to me haven't had fabric since the remodels - and they don't have precuts either.

To me, you guys make this sound easy and complicated all at the same time...lol. I think I follow how you do it. I only bought 3 yards of a few colors when I was there yesterday. I think I am going to stop and buy the rest tomorrow.
