Do you have a big home dec project on your want-to-do list, but haven’t tackled it yet because it requires many yards of gathered ruffles? Join Connie as she demonstrates how simple it is to gather fabric on an overlocker using a gathering foot.
I cut 3 1/2 inch strips for my ruffles that I sewed, turned, pressed and ruffled for the pillow. The gathering foot would have had a tough time working its magic with the seam allowance down the center of the fabric strip. The ruffler plowed through perfectly.
