There are a million ways to make these simple flowers. This is how we make them! It is not necessary to worry about being too precise- they always seem to turn out!
Gather your materials: your Ruffle Fabric, mesh, tulle or any other "filler" if you choose, small piece of felt, hot glue, E3000 glue and beads/buttons/etc. for center. Sewing machine to gather Ruffles and mesh.
1. If using tulle or English Nette, cut one strip 2 ¾ “ wide, using rotary cutter. We like the look of the nette with the 1” and mini ruffles, but the two-toned stripes are darling on their own.
2. Cut one ruffle, between the ruffles. If using mini ruffles, we use three ruffles.
3. Using a long stitch, 3.5-4 on my machine, sew next to each ruffle on the thicker portion of the knit fabric behind the Ruffles. We do not need to adjust the tension on our machines to make the fabric gather- in fact, I often gently pull the fabric from behind the presser foot to prevent too tight of gathers.
4. Using same method, stitch one row up the center of the long strip of nette.
