A New Technique Using Your Ruffler Foot and Oh So Beautiful!!

I have my new video finished and it is my new technique using your ruffler foot.  I saw a pillow in a magazine that I just fell in love with.  I wanted to try and recreate something similar.  My first plan was to use Floriani's new product called Heat N Steam.  You iron their interfacing to the back of your fabric, do some quilting or stitching, and then steam it and it shrinks up.  Looks really pretty!  I looked at JoAnn's for it and they didn't have it, so I looked on line and it is very pricey!  It was $20.00 for a small sheet!

I then decided to play around and see if I couldn't do something on my own that would look nice.  I don't know what made me grab the ruffler foot, but it just seems like this giant foot should be able to do something besides make a simple ruffle.  Then I hit the jackpot, and created row after row of ruffles on a single piece of fabric and it is beautiful!!  It also is very easy to create.  I took something that looks like it would take days to create and did it in 45 minutes.  You must watch my video and see how I made this pillow.  I Love It!!
