In case you missed this post, here it is… I was lucky enough to get to be a part of See Kate Sew‘s Ruffles Series. I’m sure I’ve mentioned it a few times, but Kate is truly one of my all time favorite bloggers, she has a unique vintage style and she is always original. I have also told her I think she used to be a clothing model :) Her Ruffles 2012 Series was amazing! Here is my ruffly contribution:
Then you need to taper the ends. Pencil it as a cutting guide then cut and pin right sides together.
Then sew leaving one end open and flip right side out.
Cut lace 2″ wide.
My favorite… the RUFFLE FOOT :)
Pin the ruffled lace to the center of the headwrap and sew. Only add the lace to about 8″-10″ or you won’t be able to tie your headwrap in the back.
And now you have your ruffly, fun headwrap.
Thanks so much Kate for all the ruffly inspiration :)

Take plain onesies and turn them into a baby fashion statement.
Babies need a little refashion sometimes too. These onesies were originally embroidered with a little “baby saying”… cute but I thought the colors were a little too girly for my Clyde. He never wore them, I refashioned and re-gifted! I just used some fabric scraps and some imagination.
I made two; here is how I made the first one:
I started by embroidering the letter “f” on my fabric, I just penciled it freehand right on the fabric.
Next step is to iron interfacing to the back of the fabric. I went for the raw edge look and this way the fabric won’t fray as much.
Next, line the fabric up to the onesie and mark with a pencil where you will cut.
Sew around the new fabric that you are attaching.
Onesie refashion number 2…
Add interfacing to the back of the fabric again and cut out some pieces of the pattern.
Pin the pieces on the onesie so you cover the old design.
And sew. I again went for a messy sewn look. If you like a neater look you could do a tight zig-zag stitch around the perimeter of the fabric.
I added my fabric label…
and wrapped them up in a cute little package. Add some clips and you have a perfect baby gift.
