Bunching Tulle & Tutu help

RaveNationJuly 27, 2013

I'm trying to crank out lots and lots of tutus and i need a more effective way of bunching tulle, pulling the tread trough is not going fast enough. Is there any way i can trick my machine into doing it for me?

Also, any helpful tips for making tutu's?

I'd suggest looking on you tube. I've linked a video below for a new sew version. You can investigate getting a gathering foot and trying a straight stitch on the tulle with it using the tightest setting on your top tension and see if it wont gather automatically for you. Or you could get a ruffler foot and see if the ruffler (which is really a pleater) won't help you get the gathers you want.

Here is a link that might be useful: No sew tutu
