I found THIS tutorial a couple days ago and had to try it out. My daughter is turning 2 in June and we’re having an Elmo themed party. This weekend I’m having her birthday pictures taken for her invitation and this tutorial gave me some great ideas.
I bought this adorable black and white damask and polka dot fabric by Michael Miller to use for my ruffles.
I measured the width of the onesie and doubled the length, then I cut the ruffles.
The tutorial called for a serger and I don’t have one so I decided to sew a zig zag stich around the edges.
Loosen the tension on the stitch as much as you can and then sew a running stitch along the center of the fabric.
Pull the thread on each end to make the material ruffle.
Then I sewed the three ruffles on the bottom of the onesie over lapping each ruffle.
I had left over material so I made these. A large and small flower clip
I clipped the large flower clip to this tutu I made for my daughter.
Stay tuned to see the new creation I just added to the Rags to Stitches Boutique.
