First, you measure out three 4″ wide strips running in the length of your fabric.
I just cut out one and used that as a template to cut the other two.
Then sew your strips together and iron the seams flat.
Now your ready to make your ruffle. You’re going to be using a basting stitch but before you start it you need to secure it at the end by sewing a few stitches back and forth using the regular stitch length. That way when you go to pull your thread it won’t come out at the end. After you have secured the end set your sewing machine to the longest stitch length like in the picture below.
Sew down the middle all the way to the end.
Now you will have two threads coming out at the end. You take one of those threads and pull it to create the ruffle. Don’t pull two hard or the thread will break and you will have to start over.
Pull all the way till the end so the ruffle looks like this.
Now secure your ruffle by sewing over it with the regular stitch length.
Then hot glue your ruffle to the wreath.
Hope you enjoy! You can view the rest of this room here.
