This apothecary jar filled with hand-painted, wooden Easter eggs was the inspiration for my newest creation.
Wait for it.....
Another ruffled shirt!
I know, but I just can't help it. I love ruffles. I guess I'm just a girly-girl.
Do you love it or what?
Here's the assortment of grosgrain ribbon that I used.
I cut a strip of each kind about 9 3/4" long.
Here are all of my little ruffles. Don't they look like a bunch of caterpillars? Go here to view my instructions for making a ruffle. For this project, however, just sew down the length of the ribbon one time instead of two.
I cut a piece of white felt the size and shape of the Easter egg that I wanted. Then I took a ruffled ribbon and sewed it across the bottom of the felt egg. I did the same for the rest of the ribbons until I filled up the egg-shape.
Once the egg was filled up with gorgeous ruffles, I pinned it to the center of one of my girl's white shirts and sewed around the outer edge of the egg with my sewing machine. Then I trimmed any parts that stuck out and sealed the ribbon edges carefully with a lighter.
Sorry about all the pictures, but I just couldn't stop. She's just too cute!
