Yesterday I spent a fair portion of the day playing around with rufflers. It is about four years since I last used a ruffler and I needed to refresh my memory.
I have four of these gadgets, and I tried out three of them. One is jammed and needs a good cleaning and oiling. Another is out of shape and it needs some gentle persuasion with a pair of pliers. Another is a much older model and I didn't try it. Those three will all have to wait until another day.
However, this one did what it was supposed to do. Here it is attached to the Singer 201K treadle, and the camera was just sitting on the bed of the machine. Now I am looking for ways to use it in my next project, which will probably be another little dress.
Quilts are taking a back seat at the moment. All I want to do is dressmaking - hardly surprising, being hooked on the Great British Sewing Bee at the moment. Tonight's instalment promises to be interesting... I think we shall be seeing some vintage machines in action. Can't wait.
Linking up today with Connie's blog Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday. Lots of interesting projects to see there.
