Can you tell I struggled with naming this shirt?

custom wedding gifts

What in the world do I call it?

It’;s kind of random.

Ruffled Rectangle works for now, right?

But I love the ruffled piece of fabric beneath those little flower buds. (Or whatever they are…;)

And I think my little lady did too.

Kind of a fun and fresh way to spruce up a plain Tee.

Want to try your own?

(Dimensions are for the one I made for my daughter who wears about a 4T.)I used scrap knit for all of the pieces. The biggest piece is about 3.5 x 12 inches. The grey rectangle is 2.25 x 4 inches. And the white strips are 4.5 inches long and about 1 inch wide at one end and about 1/2 inch at the other.

See how they are more narrow on one end?

So then I folded up each strip like an accordion…;…;.

…;…;.and centered the folds to get smaller and smaller as I folded the most narrow end on top.

Then I sewed them onto the grey piece with one stitch down each middle.

Then I curved each of the corners to make it more rounded. (I actually took a little more off each enddecorative pillow covers, to make each little flower bud more circular but that’;s not shown here. So you can take more off like I did or make your accordion folds more even to create a square and not a rectangle like I did.)

Then fluff them up.

Now gather your big piece and lay it on your shirt just how you’;d like it. I didn’;t gather the material with thread, only situated it with my fingers.

Then lay your other piece on top and pin in place.

Sew around the outer edge two times, to secure it in place. Make sure you have include all of the folds of your ruffle in your stitch and everything is securely in place.

And then put on your little girl and let her feel fancy free.

And why not try this same technique for yourself?

Something different and fun.

This past spring, Australian quilt artist and teacher, Jenny Bowker, was teaching at the Empty Spools seminars in California. Jenny is a friend, and a few years previous we had agreed to do a quilt exchange. I stopped by her classroom to give her the photo quilt I had made for her.

Make this fun geeky backpack, well, for the geeky fun of it.
