Have Serger will Travel....well, Will Ruffle anyway

Posted Saturday, August 14, 2010

OK - so the buck stops here!
Here's where Renee tells EVERYONE how to gather in ONE (not 10) steps if you have serger. Set your 1st thread to the highest number (tightest tension). That's it! Nothing else - you DO NOT have to change another thing. With that one adjustment you get ruffles that gather the fabric 3x's smaller than the fabric length. The example in the pic was 37" long and the finished piece was 12". took me 2 minutes. You can use this technique to make pettiskirts, gathered skirts, ruffles and fancy trims for projects - you name it - you CAN do it! If you want less of a ruffle just drop the tension down a notch or two...experiment and see what you need! Quick and Easy! If you need help drop me a line!!!
