A LOVE for Ruffles
And I'm not talking about the potato chip kind.
There are Ruffles everywhere and I love them!
I knew I needed to try them on some pillows.
Here is the first of many projects I've put Ruffles on!
I started with a couple yards of some white muslin.
I cut two squares the same size as my pillow form (in this case 24 x 24).
And then cut 6 strips of 4" wide fabric on the BIAS.
My mom said if I cut it on the bias then I didn't need to finish the edges. YEAH!
I sewed a gathering stitch down the middle of each strip.
And then gathered each evenly.
Next I pinned each strip to one my squares, evenly spacing them out.
I only pinned the edges at fist, so I could move the strips easily if I needed to.
Then I added the pins all the way down the ruffles.
Sew down the middle of each strip, basting down the ruffles
(Ben says my fingers in this picture scare him. And it looks like I'm 90. Which I am not!)
I sewed on all the ruffles, times two!
