Beginner's Sewing Tips: How to Make Ruffles

Think of all the beautiful things you can sew after you learn how to make ruffles!

One of the most popular methods of creating ruffles is to use large stitches along the edge. If you'll be making cloth ruffles it might be necessary to first hem one long edge of the fabric before ruffling the opposite side. Stitch as close to the edge of the lace, ribbon or other material and stay as straight as you possibly can. After stitching all the way down, remove the fabric from under the foot and cut the threads long. To create the ruffle, hold the fabric in one hand while pulling the needle thread at the end. (The top thread is the needle thread; the bottom thread is the bobbin thread.) Pull the thread from the end, where you stopped sewing, rather than the end where you began stitching. As you tug on the top thread slide the fabric or ribbon. Continue sliding the material further and further while holding onto the thread the entire time.

As you're pulling the thread and scooting the material you'll also be making the ruffles. As you ruffle the material fix it so that the ruffles seem evenly spaced and evenly gathered. Do this from one end to the other until the entire length of the ruffle is even. After you feel like the ruffles are perfect you can then pin them onto the clothing or other object you're creating. Some people use a needle and thread to create the gathers in a similar way. Just stitch along the edge from one end to the other then pull the end thread as you ruffle the fabric. When using a needle and thread to do the ruffling don't double the thread.

The above method works well for single-side ribbon, lace or other ruffles, but you can do something similar to make double-sided ruffles. The double-sided types are generally made from cloth rather than ribbon. Fold a wide piece of cloth in half lengthways and align the two long sides. Stitch along the very edge, using large stitches, then pull and gather as above. If the finished ruffle will then have an edging that covers the raw edges you need do nothing further. However, if the finished ruffle will have no edging you need to create a finished edge on the ruffle. To do this, fold the material in half lengthways so that the right sides are facing outward. On the open side, fold both raw edges over a quarter to a half-inch, and press. Align these pressed edges up, all the way down the ruffle, then press the ruffle flat. Now stitch along the edges keeping both sides perfectly aligned. Pull the thread and gather the fabric, after removing from the machine, as stated above. These ruffles are nice for collars, jackets, shirt plackets and more.

Narrow elastic can help you make a completely different kind of ruffle. The above method of ruffling can be time-consuming, but when you use elastic, you can do it much quicker. And, elastic makes it easy to create perfectly spaced and even ruffles. The real challenge when using elastic to ruffle is to keep the presser foot on the elastic. Align the end of the elastic with the end of the ribbon or material. Take a couple of stitches then stop with the needle down. Slightly tug the elastic as you continue to sew but don't pull really hard. Keep the elastic on the fabric, even as you tug, rather than pulling it upward. Stitch along slowly to ensure you keep the edge of the elastic aligned with the edge of the material and to make it easier to keep the stitches right in the center of the elastic. Eighth-inch and quarter-inch elastics work well for this technique. As you sew the finished ruffles onto garments or other things don't pull the elastic at all unless the pattern calls for that area to be elasticized. These types of ruffles are great for curtains, collars and hemline ruffling.

After you have a little practice at ruffling you might want to try to make them yourself. Lay the ruffle material onto the fabric and lay your hand on the material. Place your hand so that your fingers are just hanging over the edge you'll be sewing. Spread your fingers apart, then pull them close together, to trap material between each finger. This method works pretty well to create simple ruffles that are fairly evenly spaced. You can also try taking tiny pleats in the material to make ruffles. To do this, sew a couple of stitches, then turn the tiniest bit of material away from you, right along the edge where you're sewing. Sew a couple of more stitches then turn a tiny piece of the material towards you. Continue making a small tuck away from you, then another one towards you, all the way along the length of the material. Leave small spaces between each tuck and you'll create very frilly ruffles. Leave larger spaces between them and you'll make a slight ruffling effect instead.

Ruffles can seem very challenging when you first set out to learn them so practice each method on some scrap material just to get the hang of it. After you've made a couple of ruffles you'll begin feeling more comfortable with the process and you'll be ready to try it out for real. Before you know it you'll have ruffled curtains, ruffled dresses for your daughter, ruffled shirts for yourself...
