Using a Sewing Machine Ruffle Foot

I Got a ruffle foot for my sewing machine and I have gone ruffle crazy!

I have wanted one for a while and they are not cheap but, a girl cannot put a price on fun!

This foot attaches to your sewing machine
Each machine will have it's own model foot

I have a Baby Lock ESe2 and it was $49.99 (Like we wouldn't figure out that was$50.00)

It has 3 ruffle settings

I used the second one for all of my projects

I tore 2 inch strips of muslin fabric, then ran them thru the ruffler.

Paris and ruffles, does it get any better?

A bag with a vintage label from who else but Graphics Fairies.  Vintage lace, buttons, and of course ruffles.

A hanging pillow 
all of these projects are available at

The ruffler makes great little shabby flowers

If you like ruffles and you have thought about getting a ruffle foot...Do it!  
It is so much fun and I have not even begun to play, I still have to ruffle ribbon, lace, and other fabrics.

I am ruffling everything in sight!

I am just warning you, I think my blog has a lot of ruffle posts in it's future!

Happy Crafting

Fabulous Foot. Ruffles are all the rage so it seems only right that you can now ruffle everything in sight. I think the kitty with ruffles is the cutest. Happy ruffling...

LOL! Carol - I got one a few months ago for my machine...

I'm still ruffling the world. Just so you know - it takes A LONG TIME for the rufflin' fun to wear off!

Your pillow is GORGEOUSNESS!!! LOVE the flower!!!

Have fun!

Oooooooo DOGGY! I had no idea such a thing existed?!? I just love what you made here. I am seriously tempted to get one of my own. I'll need a good ruffle project first!
Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Carol...GET OUT! Please do not tell me that making ruffles is that easy! I have been wanting to do some ruffles, etc., but the thought of running stitches and doing hand gathering, etc. makes me want to just say forget it! How does it just run the fabric through like normal but because of the foot, it automatically "ruffles" it for you? Don't tell me it's THAT easy? Everything looks just gorgeous! You are one talented chick!

Sissie's Shabby Cottage said...

Hi Carol,
I've thought about buying a ruffler foot too.
Now that I see all your pretty ruffles, I just might have to have one!
Do you think they will have us committed for ruffle mania or ruffle obsessive compulsive disorder! LOL!

Love you girl, your the best and the cutest eva!!

Debbiedoos said...

That is one awesome little tool! Oh I just love your ruffles.those babies are going fast. You better keep busy!.

Unknown said...

Hey Carol, That is so cool, does it fit on any brand sewing machine? Please let me know, I have a Viking Rose about 9 or 10 years old... Thanks get back to me when you can! Hugs Marilou

Susan said...

Carol! How awesome that you got a ruffler!! I want to get one soon. I have a Husqvarna Rose!! I love my machine even though they don't make it anymore!! Love your projects you completed with your ruffler!

the old white house said...

i think I NEED A RUFFLER!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED to be having as much fun as you are, and create the same kinda goodness your new toy is helping you create! The pillows and bag are really faublous Carol but I wonder, do they make them for very I mean very old Kenmores? We are talking the old metal kind, hmmmmmmmm I doubt it but I will still be checking! You got my heart pounding! one more time... LOVE your creations! xoxo


LOVE the rosettes and darling pillows. What is that thing??? Does it attach to a sewing machine? Kitty looks cute in ruffles.

Ricki Treleaven said...

"I don't know nothin' bout no sewing machines, Miss Scarlett!!!"

I need to learn how to sew! Your pillows are AH-mazing!

I want one of those cute ruffled tablecloths from Pompom Interiors!!!

Unknown said...

Uuhhh! What fun! You just let me know if you run out of projects. I'll be more than happy to send you some of mine. :)

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

I am with Ricki Jill on those Pompom Interior tablecloths! Too bad they are between $140-160!

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

ohhh Carol you are having tooo much fun. Well here is another idea for your ruffler.
Buy the rolls of crepe paper streamers at the Dollar Store and RUFFLE those babies !!! Great for all paper projects and lots of fun too.

Michelle {Jarrah Jungle} said...

Another amazing project I can see the possibilities for those ruffles are endless!

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

I am a ruffler girl too ~
Oh my goodness when I first
got mine the dogs almost got
a ruffled outfit :)
They are so much fun!!


Kendra@Creative Ambitions said...

Oh... you are after my own ruffled heart!! I LOVE your blog and all your creations! Will keep the ruffle foot in mind if I ever get the sewing machine to go with it!! :)


Vicki said...

Ok, I had NO IDEA that there was such a thing! Is it really as easy as feeding the material in and it magically folds the ruffles? lol Your projects are gorgeous. I love them all.

Debbi said...

I couldnt live without my ruffle foot! I think mine was $80 for my Viking machine, but worth every single penny!

Lisa Macomber said...
