NOt a sewer either, but that is so cute!! Since I don't sew, I always look at something and say to my mom, it looks really simple. You probably just do this and that. I'm sure she's thinking in her mind, then why don't youmake it??? I'm sure someone here can tell you how its done.

it should be a tack-down stich in the applique design itself.

It is ric rac that has been pre ruffled before tackdown the machine won't ruffle it for you

Actually, you can make it yourself if you can sew a simple running stitch.

What you need to do is sewing your running stitch down your length of ribbon in a zig-zag from side to side>

so it is like that down the ribbon. Gently slide the ribbon along the thread to gather. It is easy, I promise!

But it doesnt look ruffled alone, it looks like it has been done to look like ric rac...I don't think that stitch is actually done down the center. If it was and you ruffle it, it would not give that side to side look. It almost looks like they actually made curves while sewing that stitch...and then gathered it into a ruffel before they sewed it on...unless I am over thinking it...but I just dont think that is a center stitch...it is too cute!! Wishing I had time to play with the sewing machine this weekend...if I can get my mom to look at it I will let you know what she thinks. That woman can sew anything and has never used a pattern. I can sew, but for me it is work and I need a pattern.

It's very pretty - hope you and your Mom figure it out. Mom's are so handy for stuff like that.
