I know! I worked and worked last night with different fabrics, and I finally have it!
I found a really simple/great video tut, I book marked it on my laptop, I will share it when I log in on it this afternoon!
Basically it is what was mentioned earlier; long strip of fabric, running stitch, and then gather to form the ruffle! Then you glue it to a felt circle, and make as many to add on top to add the fullness!
Let me go get my lap top because with the video you guys will be amazed at the simlicicty!!
