what would this week be without a post about ruffle fabric!  this one is just using scraps..cause you know nothing can go to waste in this house….

I had made a few hair things…that I loved…

and then it branched into this:

 to make my circles…I cut out some felt…and cut a strip of ruffle fabric…

(look at my hot glued fingers….)
I hot glue around the felt…and then pinched the fabric..make the ruffles more ruffly.

I made it all the way around

and then i started a new row on the inside….
for the leaves…I made a leaf shape…and glued around…
and then I added a button
painted my frame blue
trimmed some cardboard down to size and then painted it white.
and then hot glued all the flowers on.
added a ruffle strip at the bottom for grass
{this would also be cute slapped on some canvas.}
and ruffle fabric has some new stuff:
some crazy maze….
and did you know they sell ELASTIC!!!!
oh…I mean CUTE ELASTIC!!!!
i’m going to buy me some to make some suspenders like these:
(sugar bee made some cute headbands from some too. click HERE)
