Default What is an easy way to make the tulle strips for tutus?

Does anyone have any helpful tips on an easier way to make the tulle strips for tutus? I love making tutus but I dont like cutting the fabric. It never comes out straight and it is never the same lenght.
Thanks in advance.

I buy my tulle in 6" wide spools then all I have to do is pull it out to the length I want and cut.

you can also wrap it around a cookie sheet to make the pieces all one length when you cut them..... im sure there is a tutorial somewhere here on the forum you can use the search feature to look up the old threads that will help answer alot of your questions

I agree with all the other ladies. I buy the 6" spools. It is so much easier than buying them off the bolt and having to make so many cuts.

Thank you ladies. I will deff. try that. I just went and bought a whole bunch of 6" spools.
Would six inches be too thick though??

6" wide is the average width that people use.
