Easiest Ruffling EVER with Elastic Thread

 There are so many different ways to ruffle fabric, but this is 1 easy way to ruffle fabric easily using elastic thread



I love ruffles...maybe even more than the next person!  I love them so much but I HATE ruffling fabric.  It is so time consuming and I kinda like quick projects that I can fit in between being a mom to my 2 girls...

Plus, I ruffle a TON for my online Shop

So here is how I have made ruffling as easy as a straight stitch:

What you will need:
fabric to ruffle
elastic thread

Hand wind your bobbin with the elastic thread.  I don't pull it tight when I am winding it though. 

Now set your sewing machine to a lower tension number
And make your stitch as long as possible
Then sew....make sure to backstitch (or secure stitch) when you start and finish. 
Then you will get some awesome ruffle fabric...
That fabric is going to be for some really adorable skirts for my girls similar to this:
