Little Craft Project

I found the cutest little ruffled cake topper on The Sweetest Occasion Blog.  I was working on making some of these myself when Brittny came over and got inspired.  Check out the cute headband she made.

Ok, I know she is my granddaughter, but isn't she just the cutest little girl you've ever seen?!!!

Here are some quick instructions if you want to make this.  It took Brittny about 15 minutes to make it.

Cut a piece of fabric 2" x 8" with pinking shears. 

Fold the strip in half lengthwise, wrong sides together.

Hand sew a running stich along the folded end of the fabric.  Be sure to knot the end of the thread before you start.  When you have sewn all the way across, pull the thread to ruffle the strip.  It will pull together in a circle.

Sew the ends together to secure the circle.

Next, hot glue a botton or other cute little decoration in the center.

Next, find some elastic, measure to the head of some cutie pie that will wear it and sew ends together.

Hot glue the flower to the elastic over the seam that you just sewed.

Then place on a little cutie!  
(She sure loves her daddy!)
