How to make gathers while sewing

Ever since the history of man is recorded he has been inventing tools for ease of performing any task. When it comes to sewing too I feel the right tools gives the best results and good looking product. I have made  ruffles or gathers by hand and there are a lot of tutorials out there on many blogs. But recently I purchased a gathering foot to make the process easier :) Proudly I can show off my first project with my new sewing machine foot .

Do you read books on sewing ??

I sometimes feel guilty for owning too many DIY and sewing books. Flipping the pages for inspiration and making a lot of projects from them is my favourite passtime. Let me reveal the good news right here. I had this idea from a long time and today I am posting about it as I shall start the Sew Book Inspired Series on my blog :)
I shall write detailed posts on each and every project that I make from the sewing books. This is going to be of help to the other home sewers to get an idea of what is in the book and how well the book can help us in sewing or pattern drafting.
