Easy Sew Ruffles - A Picture Tutorial

Pull on the top thread and gently slide the fabric down.  Stop, smooth out and repeat until you have your ruffle to its' desired "ruffledness" (a new word for sure).   This step will take a few minutes.  Apparently if you have a gathering foot on your machine you can just let it "gather" the fabric for you and you can skip this thread-pulling step :o)

Here you can see the difference in length between the original strip and the ruffled strip - so don't forget to take this into consideration when planning your projects :o)

Happy sewing!
