Default Re: Ruffling Help

The secret is to let the heat, not the flame make the organza fabric pucker.

Hold the organza fabric edge about 6-8 inches over the flame (with tweezers to avoid burning your fingers), then slowly lower closer to the flame. You will notice the edge will start to pucker. (Note: if you hold the middle of the organza over the flame, the whole circle will pucker).

- Singe your edges first. Makes it easier later on.
- Lift quickly after you get the right pucker because these can pucker too much very quickly.
- Work one section of the edge at a time instead of trying to do the whole piece in one pass.

Hope that works for you.
