Have you ever used a ruffle attachment on your sewing machine? I had been wanting a ruffle attachment for awhile, but never got around to ordering one. A couple of weeks ago I began researching their cost and videos on how to use them.
I have a bernina so my first thought centered around purchasing a bernina ruffle attachment no. 86.
I found the Bernina brand for around $100 on EBay, new and in the box, but I also found a knock off brand for $26.99! I purchased the knock off one.
It arrived within a few short days and I was beyond excitement to put that baby on and begin making ruffles!
Four hours later and after watching you tube videos repeatedly for the life of me I could not figure out how to attach that ruffle attachment properly.
Yes, there were instructions in the box, but they were horrible and the more I read them the more I became confused.
Finally after just sitting and looking at the ruffle attachment and studying how it was made I had a light bulb moment!
Once I figured out how to assemble the gadget it was time to find the proper ruffle setting. That took a considerable amount of time too, but after playing with it and changing the numbers on the devise I was finally making the prettiest ruffles. In fact I do believe those ruffles are probably the prettiest ruffles I've ever seen on this side of the Missouri!
I even dabbled with some hang tag making!
My advise to you if you purchase a ruffle attachment... Take it slow and watch a few how to videos before attempting to assemble.
I hope this gets you ruffle excited and wanting to make oodles upon oodles of ruffles! Because I believe, Ruffles are RONDERFUL!
