It does look a bit mean and ready to pinch fingers!
I've been itching to play with it ever since then but there was just no time with some deadlines to be met to send gifts to my family in Europe. I was able to send all the presents this past Tuesday, then took a couple of days off crafting to straighten up the house, decorate and catch up on a few more things. Last night I thought I had the whole evening to
play craft and sew. Not so. Got a call from work for an emergency job at 8:30 pm that kept me busy until almost 10:00 pm. Not much time left.
SOooooo I decided to give the ruffler a quick spin. I swear I'm never going back to hand ruffling or machine ruffling without this baby. It is AWESOME. It only took a couple of tries and I was rocking it. Ruffle galore in 2 minutes flat. And for $15.
Then the brain went spinning and this is what I cam up with ....
A little ruffled tree for my studio with a garland from a string of pearls
and a couple of cute shinny buttons as ornaments
It's not even glued yet, I pinned everything to have an idea of the effect. By then it was quite late so I went to bed and will finish it tonight.
Believe me, that ruffler marvel is going to be used regularly from now on.
All done !
