Don’t you just love spring time? I completely love it. Everything about spring makes me happy. The colors, the flowers, the excitement of playing outdoors after being inside for way too long. I love it!
Most of this spring layout is self-explanatory. I’ll just give you a few steps on how I made the above display.
*For the table runner, I sewed the ruffles on the top layer before sewing the underneath fabric to the top fabric. I topstitched around the whole thing, but not on top of the ruffles. So I backstitched close to the ruffles.
*For the ruffled vase. First measure around your vase.
Then cut some strips twice that amount, (so these are 22″ x 3″).
Use a basting stitch along one of the sides and pull on one of the threads to ruffle the strip.
Place a ruffle around the vase, and see where it will need to be sewn. Make it tight enough so that it doesn’t slide down the vase. But don’t pull too tightly and break the basting stitch.
Sew together to make a ruffled circle.
