I then got VERY technical and I pinned the two sides to the muslin square I had made. I found the center and pinned it in the center as well. If I were really good (and I'm not)....I would have drawn a pencil line to make sure I stayed straight as I sewed, but I like to live life on the edge like that, and I never strive for perfection. It sounds too boring. . A girl and a Singer Sewing machine-if that doesn't say danger...
This is actually pinned near the bottom, but it's hard to tell b/c the fabric is folded under.
I then got very technical, and I squished my ruffles into place as I sewed. Placing the pin in the center let me know about how much I could 'ruffle' and have the fabric evenly distributed. Yes, I know this is technically all the wrong ways to ruffle, but I'll leave the 'real' sewing to *you.* You should thank me, I make 'real seamstresses' look even better. ;o)
Here's ruffle number 1 sewed into place. I then repeated this for the next two ruffle sets.
