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
Plus, I ruffle a TON for my online Shop
Ruffled Flower Rag Quilt:
So here is how I have made ruffling as easy as a straight stitch:
What you will need:
fabric to ruffle
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
I love this!!!! I'd love it if you the Glitter link party! http://runwithglitter.blogspot.com/2011/05/running-with-glitter-9-link-party.html
Thank you for sharing this! I just found 2 reels of elastic thread and until now had no idea what to do with them until now!
Gonna make me some ruffles!
Well, that is too cool! Thanks so much for sharing that!!!! I love ruffles too and have GOT to try this!!!!
Thank you!! :-)
Awesome!! I need to try this :D
I have tried to do this with my machine and it just wont ruffle! I have read a thousand tutorials and tried every variation of tension and it just wont work. Is it possible my machine just won't do it? I have an inexpensive "starter" machine.
OMG I MUST try this! Thanks for the tip!
Super cute! Thanks for sharing great tutorial!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

Thank you for the tip and tutorial! I am a newbie in sewing but this looks good to try :)
Love the flowers.. so cute.
What a great tip! I've never even heard of elastic thread but will now be looking for it. I love those flowers on the rag quilt!
This is so cute I would love to be able to sew anything.
That is a GREAT way to ruffle! I am pinning this to refer for when I finally get my machine fixed! I LOVE sewing!
This is a great how-to guide! The finished products look wonderful.
