how to cheat at making ruffles.

 want to know that cheaty-est way to make a ruffle?
set your machine on the longest straight stitch you can...
 ...as you are sewing...hold onto the thread...increasing the tension...
 ...and your fabric will ruffle right up...the amount of tension you put on the thread will determine how much ruffle you get...
...you can tell in this photo the areas where i held the thread tighter and more loosely...

easiest ruffle making ever.

this new skill will come in handy for flower week...which starts tomorrow!

If you were here right now, I'd give you a big ol' hug :)

I tried this tonight and it worked like a charm. Thank you so much!

I have tried other methods and it was labourious and frustrating.

I'm going to pass this along to my readers and will post a link to you, to give you credit.

Thanks again.
