hey guys *long time lurker first time poster*

I am in the process of converting most of my old t-shirts into new treasures (shrugs,skirts,tanks etc)

I am starting to get frusterated with hand sewing the shirts that "ruffle" when you hem them.

I tried heat and bond but after washing it doesnt stick well and frankly I want to be a bit rough in these clothes and not have to cold wash and hang them everytime they get dirty

any ideas? (I hear zig zag stitch might work but I have yet to try ...)

Use of a walking foot is great for stretch fabrics.
