I need to stop opening these kinds of posts up. Cause then its just another thing I "need" to try. As if my to do list isn't long enough already! I do like that this project requires no extra supplies then what I currently have. No excuse to go supply shopping for this one!

I just remembered I came across a tutorial that looks similar but with less layers than the one on etsy.

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!!

Oh, and that blog tut is great!
I will have to experiment with gluing as well.

it is a good tut but different flower. the first one pictured is with a type of box pleat that you cant get by just doing a running stitch at the bottom and pulling. a previous poster is right about folding - not gathering. you can fold about every inch or so, pin and then stitch along the bottom edge with your machine - i think thats faster than gluing. the one pictured is about a yard of fabric i would geuss. hope that helps.

Oh, good to know!

The one that I made last night with the running stitch looks SUPER similar, but I imagine that the folding would make it much more "full".
