DIY Ruffles

Maybe I went a little over-board but I wanted to make a retro-shirt to match my new car because I couldn't find one at the store that was a perfect shade of baby-blue, plus I wanted a scarf to wrap around my head to match.

So I went to the fabric store and bought a yard of baby blue chiffon then I cut it into strips and started sewing.  Here's how I did it.

First I did a loose zig-zag stitch then I grabbed one thread and pulled it together to gather the material.

If you want to see how, watch this.

It's super simple and it costs way less than buying ruffles.

I can't view your video though. It says "video is private."

Enjoy your new ruffles and wheels!
