Ruffled Tablecloth

Today was the first day of school, and I still have done no sewing. Here is my ruffled tablecloth. I haven't finished the other yet. It is the reverse, pink on top with a green ruffle.
It turned out a little smaller than the table, so I don't know what happened. I measured again, and my measurement were correct. I think it had something to do with the corners. I taped it to the table and stretched it as far as it would go, but I had to strategically put some books on the back left corner.

What a great color scheme! Hot pink, lime green and tons of maps- I like my room!

Someone left a comment about a tutorial for the ruffler. I am not a maker of tutorials; I enjoy teaching, but sewing is my hobby. Besides, Susan at Spare Time has made a wonderful, incredibly detailed, 5 part series on how to use all the features of the ruffler. I couldn't even top it if I wanted to! You can see part one here.

Thanks, Susan!!


  1. Well, you're welcome! I wondered how your ruffling went. Such an incredibly handy attachment. Can you imagine pulling threads to gather something like that?

    I love the maps around your classroom. My husband also teaches 6th grade social studies and decorates his room with maps and old drawings too.

  2. Your room looks awesome.


  3. Your classroom is great; bright and engaging. I'm sure the students appreciate that you made the room so nice. I hope you have a great year!


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
