What is pink, red and ruffly all over?!?
My Rufflicious Valentine Top!
Isn't she cute??
It was so fast and fun!
Here's how to make your own!
Cut out a heart in the size you want.
Trace the heart on the top with a pencil.
Cut a piece of interfacing, or stabilizer bigger than your heart.
Stick that square under the heart, on the inside of the shirt and iron over it.
If you turn the shirt inside out, this is what you'll see.
Cut 2 strips from the length of your fabric, no more than 1 inch wide.
Set your stitch length as long as it will go!
Sew down the middle of your strips, letting it naturally gather as it goes.
Your strips will look like this when you're done.
Starting at the bottom of your heart, begin stitching the ruffly strip along the pencil outline.
When you reach the bottom of the heart, keep going, filling in the heart layer by layer.
Be careful not to stitch through the back of the top too!
The back will look like this.
Pull your threads through and tie them off.
Isn't it so fun???
I'm in love!!
And I'm even more in love with it on my precious Valentine!!
Add a twirly-whirly skirt and you have one happy girl!
Have a rufflicious Valentine's Day!!
