Regency Inspired Apron With a Twist!

I decided to use my new ruffler foot and make a Regency Inspired Apron that was gathered rather than pleated. I quite like the result!

It's up on Etsy here. :-)

Fun With Ruffles!

I'm so excited, I got a ruffler foot! It did take me a while to figure out how to use it, but once I did I couldn't wait to make something with it. So of course, I made an apron. :-)

It's amazing how much time it saves (and thread, since it gathers and attaches at the same time.) I did both the ruffle around the bottom, and the gathering for the waist with the ruffler.

It also makes pleats, so I may have to come up with another project to test those out as well!

Oh, and of course this apron is up for sale at my Etsy shop. :-)
