Ruffles for Sweet Pea

Yesterday, I actually had something I haven't had in quite a while.... FREE TIME with a dose of INSPIRATION!

I brought Jude home from preschool and therapy and put him straight down for his much needed nap- his naps are two or three hours long on his preschool days.

While Jude napped I got to actually sit in front of my sewing machine for a little while.  So I decided to make my Sweet Pea a gift or two..

I got a little carried away with the ruffles on this one... from now on I'm going to stick to only two or three rows of ruffles instead of four.

I wanted to make some more ruffled goodies today, but I have been a little under the weather today.  Nothing to worry about though.

I have plans for ruffled onsies, diaper covers, bibs, and more burp cloths that coordinate.  Now all I need to do is set them aside for a monogram when the time comes.  So excited! 

And if Sweet Pea turns out to be Butter Bean instead (which is most likely the case), I know someone will enjoy these sweet gifts.

Thanks for letting me share!


  1. those are so cute! how do you make ruffles? i've been seeing them all over the internet, but i haven't found any good tutorials.


Thank you for taking the time to share a kind word with me!
