Who can Resist Ruffles!



Following Vintage Sassy's last post on (Ruffles) I thought i would share my Ruffled Table Cloth that i made for a (Ruffles & Stuff)contest on making something or anything unique & ruffled. At that point I hadn't seen any table clothes with ruffles-
And I promise right after i finished it- there was the Country Home's Article on Ruffles- and there was a Ruffled pretty white tablecloth.
Funny how that happens- I guess we all have such great thinking alike minds.

I used a cheap $3.00 sheet-
then made some ruffles -using old fabric and left overs- turning them into long pleated-ruffles and sewing them directly on to sheet- starting at the bottom.
I also used some pre-made ruffled ribbons trying to give different layers of textures-styles-thickness-colors even used ends of blankets to make it more unique.
I'm sure you can see it got to a point where the line of ruffles going around table cloth started to slowly angle down. (Yikes)


Then, There is my Ruffled Party Hat- I just thought it would be kind of Different & Cute, I also submitted to Ruffles & Stuff for her (all that is ruffled contest) a while back.

  4. Cute ruffles!!!! And using a sheet is a wonderful idea since they usually don't require much ironing. Isn't ironing a DRAG? I love to wear linen clothes in the summer because it is cool. But, hate the wrinkles.... anyway brilliant idea & adorable tablecloth. Thanks for sharing.
