I was trying to come up with a project for our April BERNINA Club. The topic is gathering.
Then I thought, what about a pillowcase with a ruffle? I grabbed some old fabric and tried it.
When I first learned to sew, I hated gathering. You had to sew with a very long stitch, then gently pull the threads to draw up the gathers.. and then right before you were done..... the thread would break. I hated gathering anything
Then I discovered my BERNINA makes it so much easier.
I will admit when I first looked at this attachment, I thought... oh no, no way, no how am I putting that scary looking thing on my machine... I'll break it, I'll break the machine, something awful will happen. Then I watched a few You Tube videos and got my courage up. Now it is my favorite attachment of all.
You can adjust it to make a very tight gathered piece or a loosely gathered piece.
You can add a ruffle to a pillow, a pouch, a bag, skirt, anything at all.
Now, how many of these pillowcases will I need to make....
Happy sewing everyone
