My youngest is now 3, so I don't have any more babies to make fun things for. When I was invited to a baby shower I was so excited to make this idea that was floating around in my head! Inspiration from here and here.
Red ribbon (I used grossgrain, but anything washable would work)
Step 1: Measure your ribbon to three times the size of the ruffle you want
Step 2: Sew (with matching thread) a line down the middle of your ribbon. Pull one thread to gather into a ruffle.
Step 3: Use fray check on ends or use a match to melt the ends. Be careful not to burn the ends or catch them on fire. ;)
Step 4: Pin the ruffle across the bum of the onesie. Don't go through both sides! I am not a pinner. I HATE pinning, but it really needs to be done with this. Trust me.
Step 5: Sew the ruffle onto the onesie.
Step 6: Repeat with 2 smaller ruffles.
Step 7: Measure out a piece of fabric to about twice the size of where you want it to go.
Step 8: Sew a line down the middle, just like with the ribbon. Pull one thread, just like with the ribbon.
Step 9: Pin onto onesie.
Step 10: Sew around edges.
Step 11: Using your seam ripper, take out the middle seam you originally made. This will give it the cute ruffled look.
That's it! So cute!
I also made a cute ruffle for the front and a matching hair clippie.
Then, I rolled them up and tied with a ribbon.
I also added this cute onesie. I found the idea on the Silhouette blog, using heat transfer. Cute!!
