Think Ruffles!!! Are you ready to RRRUUUUFFFFLLLLEE????

 
asked me to be the head cheerleader for
this hop of course I said, yes. 
(she, of course, is the Queen of Ruffles)
I had really not added a ruffle to
much of anything, so I was a bit  nervous.
But it wasn't as hard
as I had expected it to be.
 
So, what did I decide to make?
I gave you a bit of a teaser
last week with some pretty
little red ruffles
 
 


Cutie little napkins!
(Or at least I think so)
 




I had some pre-made Aunt Martha's napkins
hanging around the house,
so why not add a little ruffle on it.
I drew up a tea or coffee cup
 (whichever your preference)
 and appliqued it to the front,
added some Hand-stitching around the
cups using Aurifil 12 wt. thread.
And ended up having some pretty cute
little table accessories. 
I LOVE THEM. 
 


I usually like to make more than one project,
and if you all know me
I am a weeee bit of a procrastinator,
I did manage to finish just one more.
(Although, I know  that it won't
be my last.)

A Ruffled and Ready Bike bag
of my own design.
 


What girlie wouldn't love this hanging on the
front of their bike?
I think that I might have to
work on one for myself.
(After I finish a few for the
other girlies on my list)
 


Ruffled and Ready
to hit the roads.
 



So are you ready to see the other great
rufflers?   Be a great
CHEERLEADER
and go check them out!!
(Make sure to say Hello)
Here is the schedule for today.

Sew Incredibly Crazy  - You are Here !!

P.S. It is my second blog anniversary, so stay turned for some great giveaways
after the hop, maybe a bit of thread and fabric!!!

  36. Happy Blogiversary, Amy! What a terrific way to start the "Think Ruffles" blog hop too. I don't know which project is cuter--the napkins or the bike bag. Since I am a huge stitchery fan, I'll say the napkins. I love the border around the ruffle with the stitching through it--really sets off the designs.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a great way to spruce up some plain napkins, they turned out great!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I like that your bike bag actually zips closed, so many of the "front of bike" bags are open and things jostle out of them. Great design! And your ruffle-y napkins are very fancy :)

  43. When this hop idea came out I couldn't think of that I would make other than Tammy bags (where I go crazy with ruffles). I like the idea of doing the napkins. But your bike bag is the best! sewingblogsarefun@yahoo.com

  51. I adore the napkins. They will add a wonderful pop of color to any table. Some little girls are going to be thrilled with the bike bags. I always had a clunky metal basket. I would have been thrilled with ruffles, ruffles, and more ruffles for a bike bag. Thanks for getting this hop off to a wonderful start.
