I'm in love.....

with my new Ruffler!

Ruffler, oh ruffler....where have you been all my life? Not sure how I lived without it for the past 35 years! It's been the talk around our house....the boys think it has something to do with potato chips (Ruffles :) HA!

The contraption looks very intimidating. It took me about 30 minutes just to figure out how to get it on my machine....but once I did...oh the things I can do....and the time I can save!! I messed around with it a little while to determine how to get the material to the length I want it after ruffling....I finally got the right formula to cut my measurement by 50% after if my fabric is 20", after I ruffle it, it measures 10" now I know that I can make it fit any garment I want to so awesome! The cost at JoAnn's was $15....not bad considering the time I will save! Here is a picture of the crazy contraption....just in case you have no idea what I am talking about! :O)

This is not my actual ruffler...just one I found on the internet....but it looks the same...a little intimidating huh?
