The Ruffle Foot

Do you have a ruffle foot for your sewing machine? It is the coolest thing ever!  I bought one a long time ago and it took me months before I ever tried to use it, but once I did I was soo happy!!  No pulling threads or trying to get a perfectly even ruffle...it does it for you!  Here's what my ruffle foot looks like.
And here's what I quickly whipped up the other day with it.  
I just cut some strips of knit fabric,

ruffled them up,


and sewed them on a $2 sweatshirt from WallyWorld. 

Quick and easy!  Here are a few more pictures of my little model.  And yes, she is wearing fake leather pants...who could resist them when they were only $1 at Target!




And here's a close up of her little hair flower...I still love rolled rosettes!

I was just looking at one of these today at Joanns & thought it was too good to be true. Now I think I have to go back to get one. Very cool! And your little model is adorable by the way. :)

I would love one of these...they are just so expensive for my bernina. Hmmm. Someday. So glad you're feeling great and back into sewing a bit.

I would love to try a ruffle foot. I have not bought any accessory feet for my machine yet, but that could be so much fun! :)

My dd has those same pants btw and loves them! hehe

I've never seen a ruffler foot like that.
I have one of those big honker ruffler attachments that I kinda hate.

I would love to know more about that foot. What kind of machine do you have? Those ruffles look awesome!
