ric rac? I do! Alison made a hibiscus shirt last week. As promised I made one too. Hers is a bit cuter due to a brown shirt, but this blue one is way too fun as well. I made my first ruffled skirt today. It was not as hard as my mind made it out to be. All I had to do was adjust the stitch length and sew a loose stitch across the top of the ruffled part, then pull the bobbin thread to gather the ruffle. The shirt was a problem! I wanted something simple but matchey since the fabric is so busy. My solution? I ripped out the bib of the shirt, added the fabric (which I gathered with elastic to create a gathered effect), and sewed the bib back on! I am tired! One more outfit to go...I am so excited to finally get to my apples and pear fabric. Maybe tomorrow my craft area will get some much needed cleaning.
