I Love My Glue Gun!
I have not been able to figure out how to do ruffles on my sewing machine. I think it may need a different foot!? Is that possible? Anyway, I've tried a couple of times and my thread just breaks off. But I've seen such beautiful refashions done with ruffles and I really wanted to do it too!
Then I found a book called 99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim, and Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special. (Note: I linked this to Amazon but get it at your library!) It has a great idea for making ruffles and when I saw it I thought that would never work. Well it did!
Want to know how I did that? I cut the sleeves off the shirt. I then cut a spiral out of the leftover fabric. The spiral cut made a cute little ruffle. I then HOT GLUED the ruffle to the shirt! And look how cute!
You probably want nice pictures of the spiral and probably a better picture of the shirt. Well I would too but we can't have everything you want! I keep telling that to my three year old and she doesn't listen either.
The thing is the shirt is really dark and the pictures I took of the spiral didn't come out. Also, have you noticed I take all my own pictures. I don't trust my husband to take good ones of me and usually I have a ridiculous look on my face so I crop out my face! The other ones I took of the shirt looked pretty silly!
I'm going to do another shirt and do a really nice tutorial. I promise!
Linking up this week here.
