Ruffle love!

I am on a major ruffle kick here lately! This project, made just an hour ago, is a ruffled scarf. I'm giving it to a friend that will be moving to Texas in a couple of weeks. I wanted her to have an "indoor" scarf for her nicer dresses and sweaters that she wears to church, but I didn't want it to be hot and bulky, like my ruffly polar fleece scarf. I wanted soft and delicate, so for this one, I used a dreamy, cream-colored t-shirt knit that I picked up a JoAnns yesterday (1/2 yd $4.50).

It's 45" wide, so I cut two 4" wide pieces, then used a stretch stitch to join the two lengths together, making a 90" length of fabric. I don't have a ruffle foot for my machine, so I went in half an inch and started pinching and sewing...very slowly feeding the material under the presser foot....all the way to the end. Then I flipped it to the other long side....
And repeated the pinching/stitching process until I got this GORGEOUS double ruffle.
It's ruffle-tastic! I sure hope she likes it. I know I do...in fact...I have enough material left over, I may just have to make one for myself! *LOL*
Don't forget ~~ if you haven't joined in on the Stalker Fun for the $30 gift certificate to CSN Stores here on my blog, go do it now! I'm off to work on an embroidery project for the evening that I'll share later this week. Thanks for stopping by & have a great rest of your day!!
