Sorry it took me so long to reply. I didn't see the post until now. Yes, I used 6" strips. I actually bought spools of tulle and the strips are 6". The black and orange tutu that I made my DD for Halloween were 9" tulle but that is only because that is all I could find in those colors. The 6" is easier to work with.

I bought the spools of tulle at a craft supply store. I have seen them at Walmart in the wedding section as well but their colors are limited and more pastel. Here is an ebay link to give you a better idea of what to look for. The spools are much faster to work with rather than cutting strips off a bolt of fabric.

tutu birthday party

My dd will be 5 next month and we are gonna have a tutu birthday party and all the little girls will make their own tutus and then I will take pictures of them all twirling in their tutus. We are so excited and have been planning this for months.

Great idea! DD will only be two, but maybe when the time comes :

OP:
I took her to the fabric store the other day and she picked out her colors- peach, shimmery light purple, shimmery silver, and light blue... I just finished making it. It's so cute! I still have to make one with the outdoorsy (or tree as she calls it) colors she picked- brown, green, and tan. I'll try to post a picture of the one I made. I think I'm going to make one for DH's 3.5yo niece for Christmas.
