Brrrrrrr, it is cold AND foggy here,,,,hope you are warm and snuggly!!
Today I worked on some things for my Classes at Bountiful Home, here in Edmonds WA. Too fun to put the kits all together....which will include some ruffled Crepe papers for embellishments...........
Just go to the dollar store or party store and buy rolls of crepe paper in your Fave Colors.
Make sure you have a good sharp needle in your sewing Machine, and Set the Stitch size to the largest setting, then set the Tension to the highest. (If your thread starts to break, set the tension a bit lower.) When stitching on the paper,,,,,leave a long tail of threads at BOTH ends. That way you can pull it tighter or loosen the ruffle to fit your projects.
Fold it in half (Or you can continue to fold as you are sewing.) Stitch appx. 1/4 inch from the edge of the Fold. (The ruffling will vary with the type of Crepe you use,and trust me,,,these papers vary in Thickness and stiffness,,,that is why you want a long thread "tail" at each end to adjust your ruffles after you have sewn!
These are fun to use in a lot of projects,,,,If you have any questions, I'll be happy to help!!
Can't believe tomorrow is Friday already,,,,Where did the week GO?? Hope your week is going well what ever you've been up to!!
Hugs, Love and a "Ruffled" Bus!
