What are you most proud of? This is my first time attempting ruffles. I'm glad I did because they as hard as they seem!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't try to rush. Take your time and measure measure measure!!!!

Adorable! These would make such great hostess gifts! Thanks for the inspiration! I have to try and take a stab at these ruffles! Was it really hard? Did you use a ruffle foot? :)

Thank you! I agree, they would make a wonderful hostess gift. Because who doesn't love ruffles, right? I do use a ruffle foot. It looks extremely intimidating but once you get the hang of it you will NEVER gather by hand again! This apron was the first time I actually used mine, aside from practicing on scrap jelly roll slices. lol. I find that ironing a 1/4 in hem along the top of your ruffle piece makes the end result cleaner. This apron is a little labor intensive. But it comes together rather quickly once your hemming in done. You can just do so much with it. Have fun!
