How much Tulle you need depends on how long or short you are wanting your tutu. For an infant start with 2 rolls (I made mine for my 1 year old and I used a roll and a half of red- I also added white and brown and didn't even use 1/2 of those rolls) of the predominant color. If you want to add other colors here and there then you will only need one roll of that color and will not end up using it all =)
About Tulle (pronounced 'tool'), just walk into your Joanns Fabric store (this is where I get all my tullle) or your hobby lobby and tell them you need pre cut tulle and they will direct you to where it is. Walmart does not always carry pre cut tulle.
First, measure the childs waist with measuring tape. Then you want to subtract 4 inches from that measurement. So if your childs waist is 20 inches then you want to cut a piece of Elastic that is 16 inches long. This allows some stretchiness to the tutu so it doesn't fall off your child ;)
Next you want to hot glue the elastic ends together one end overlapping the other. See picture.
