Well I had made theses scarves. And people just weren't warming up to them. (Sorry pun!) They didn't know what the long patchwork of fabric was!
So I had inspiration one day to add a ruffle. Sewing by hand is fun and relaxing for me. I just make a running stitch by hand and gathered the fabric into a ruffle.
The ruffle would then turn out to be a little swirl or a floret. And then are stitched down with my sewing machine. I really like how they all turned out.
So a girl won't be overpowered by ruffles. This ruffle just adds a touch of whimsy and fun!
