You will love this easy method to make ruffles for clothes
Or a pillow
I saw this on a blog, I just don't remember who's? If anyone knows, I would love to link it up. The blogger had put fabric circles on a white undershirt and it was so cute I would love for you to see it!
This works best with t shirt material, I had this shirt in my closet forever and never wore it. I was going to donate it when I thought...Wait a minute!
I cut 40 approximately 3" circles. No need to be precise.
Fold the circle in half, then fold again and again. The original instructions said to hand stitch, but I'm always in a hurry so I used my sewing machine and ran a stitch close to the point.
Then open into a flower
Pin the flowers on your fabric in any pattern you choose, close together or far apart. Then attach with a couple of stitches through the center of each flower.
I found a black and white t shirt at the thrift store and cut 35 circles to put on this black shirt. No need to buy a new shirt to cut up when you can pick one up at the thrift store
On the shirt I put some extra stitches on the outside of some of the flowers to make them lay flatter. I get compliments from total strangers every time I wear this shirt
What is it about our pets, every time I bring out the camera
There they are! I was trying to photograph the pillow, not you guy's.
This was a little tedious, but a good "Sitting in front of the TV" project. I love the results and it certainly was easy.
I can see using these circles on all sorts of projects
Now, before I let you go I want to show you a couple giveaways I was ohhhh so lucky to win!
And from Laura at Decor to Adore I won the Oh La La giveaway from her travels to France. Feast your eyes!
Thank you Jocelyn and Laura!
Finally, I want to highlight a special blogger. Debbie at Words Up On Wheels made a special effort to stop in at Orange Tree Antiques and see my booth while she was on vacation. She wrote a post about it and nicer words have never been written. Debbie is an unbelievably talented writer, I would call her blog "Word Candy", stop over and feast your eyes!
