I am really happy with a new little small table runner I made..more ruffles..whats not to love?!
I started out by taking a white sheet and dying it in the washing machine with this dye.
It came out way too dark--I used the whole package. I realize now I should have only used a little. I wanted a really faint color. So, on the advice of another blogger I bleached it. At first I thought it was too light, but now I think it is perfect!
I started out by ruffling both sides of the middle area...
I was having problems with my ruffler (not sure what the problem is yet) so had to hand ruffle most of it. The way I hand ruffle is to zig zag over a piece of button thread and pull--that has worked better for me than doing a basting stitch.
I sewed on the ruffle and then pulled the ruffles to the center and sewed on a backing...
The ruffles look so pretty on the table!
I found this bunny egg holder at Goodwill and made her a little skirt by tying fabric pieces to a stand I had. I gave her a little bow for her ear too. Flowers from our soaked gardens make the table look even more spring like!
I just can't get enough when it comes to ruffles!
