How To Ruffle

I love a good ruffle. Especially now that Emily’s around. I find that I’m drawn not only to ruffles for her, but me too now! So girly!

Not only are these ruffles adorable, apparently they’re tasty too!

I’ve only every made ruffles one way, so when I saw different ways to make them, I was interested. Here are some of the tutorials I’ve found that will give you some variety in your ruffling!

I had no idea that different ways to make ruffles!

Hope these sewing tips make your ruffling a little easier!
