My little ruffler attachment is getting quite a workout! Though the 2012 self proclaimed "year of the ruffle" has only just begun!
This is my project I spent my afternoon and evening yesterday working on. Being fast with a project has never been one of my attributes! It makes me tired thinking about the 3 more of these I need to make. It was a lot of pressing, sewing, ruffling, repeat. Thank goodness I wasn't having to do the ruffles the old fashioned way or I would probably still be working on it. I did french seams and made it all very finished so it can go through the wash many many times.
I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Even though it took me hours...I have to be happy in the fact that the total cost of this project was 3.99...the cost of a sheet set at Goodwill that looked like it had never been used. Oh, how I love Goodwill!
I thought I would add some pictures of the ruffler attachment for those of you that don't yet have one..the pictures are dark because I took them last night. You can see how you can adjust how full the ruffles are, etc.
This is a piece that is really worth the money if you plan to do many ruffles. I got mine several years ago for $25. I consider it a necessary part of my ruffling projects. I was never very good at ruffling by hand.
The ruffles are uniform and can be adjusted to be fuller, or less full, depending on what you like.
Can't wait until all the chairs are covered, ruffled and beautiful!
