I want to make a tulle tutu for my Daughter.  I want to make the non sew one where you cut strips and tie them to elastic.  How does everyone one cut their strips? Mine are going to be 3" wide. 
Do you mark the three inch strips and cute w/ scissors or eyeball it and cut with scissors or use a rotary cutter?


If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

there are some links and info on non-sew tutus in this thread that may help: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=154582.0

as far as cutting it, I suppose you can do either. it just depends on how fast you need to work and how detail oriented you want to be. Smiley the tulle is going to be all bunchy anyway so you're not going to be able to tell if you're a 1/2 inch off somewhere.

Ive made a couple of these. I dont measure the strips, I just guess. Its so puffed up that you cant tell anyway  Smiley
