DIY Sweater Ruffles

To go with the cute shirt I have been challenged to make(but am not finished with) I decided to add some ruffles to an old sweater.

Making ruffles is super easy!


Take strips of fabric of desired thickness, sew a loose stitch all the way down the middle of the strip, remember – DO NOT BACK STITCH! Then take those strips and pull loosely on one of the threads to make a ruffle. Then take those ruffle strips and pin to your sweater or garment of choice. Sew down the middle and take out the loose stitch if possible with a seam ripper.
