A month ago, I came across this tutorial for a ruffled wreath. I thought it looked really cute and wanted to give it a try. I love the ruffles!
A good opportunity came up when I needed a little something for a craft night. The theme: PATRIOTIC. I used blue and white toile fabric that I already had. I wanted to make rosettes for the needed red. So I made three from some fabric strips my mom gave me. They're inspired by this tutorial.
(i've got to say... i'm really loving ruffles. i think i want to try some throw pillows. i may be investing in a ruffle foot for my sewing machine. also, i definitely want to make some more of the rosettes.)
