Pre-Ruffled Fabric!

 I've been hitting up the fabric clearance racks at Hobby Lobby pretty regularly lately. It's really paid off--pre-cut lengths of fabric at nearly 50% off! And the best part is no waiting for someone to come cut it for you!

Anyway, I found about a yard of hot pink pre-ruffled fabric about a week ago. Total score!

Here's the super simple tube top I made myself. Just sewed a tube and put in a little casing for elastic at the top so I wouldn't have any wardrobe mishaps:

I think it will be a great beach top for our vacay next month. Maybe with a little cardi at nighttime?

The ruffle fabric was a lot easier to work with than I thought it would be. I made sure to use a ball-point needle and I was very careful that when I sewed the seams all the ruffles were going the same direction.

BEST PART--I made Kiki a matching jumper!

I'll be linking up here.

One last thing--please go vote for my entry in Me Sew Crazy's Pattern Remix Contest! It's the Upcycled Pillowcase Outfit that I made for Kiki a couple of months ago:

Of course, all the entries are fantastic, so just go vote for your fav--hopefully it's mine!

    I'm Tonya's aunt (if you can remember back that far) and I really miss all the lovely ladies with whom I had the most fantabulous tea party in Edmond a "few" years ago?!!
