    Learned Something New!

    Yesterday we had a mini retreat and we learned how to make gathered flowers. They are fun and the possiblities are endless. When I got home, I finally pulled out my scary ruffler foot and it was pretty easy and made the flowers go together very quickly. These are a great thing to use that leftover binding for. Beware! They are additive.

    Those are pretty flowers! I wonder if you could put the hair clips on the back and put them on the baby stretchy head bands? I"ve seen the head bands done with artificial flowers but those could be made to match a special outfit. If it isn't a copywrite violation, I think we need a tutorial on them for QB.

    Those are very pretty and a good reason to actually use one of the attachments that we seem to be scared of.

    Cool. Wonder if it can be done without the ruffler....don't have that bit of technology on my vintage machine.

    What a neat idea, I see these on a little girls quilt. Bet you will come up with a guilt that has many of you flowers on it.

    They are so pretty. Yes they can be made by making a long running stitch and pulling the fabric along the thread by hand.

    They are darling. I can see why they would be addictive.

    Tartan, I think they would work great on a headband. I put pins on the back of mine. Daughter will use one on her backpack and I'm using one on my sewing machine bag, and my school bag. I'll try to come up with instructions soon. They are fun!

    Absolutely, Earthwalker, the first two two-tone ones I did without the ruffler and then decided to pull it out. You just pleat the fabric as you stitch 1/4" from the raw edge. Pleating was really pretty quick and was better than gathering.

    Very nice and using leftover binding to make them is an excellent idea.
