ruffle dish towel

High show stoppin' style!
The day after Christmas we have a family party at my grandparents house, everyone is supposed to bring a white elephant gift from home, since there arent many kids in my extended family, I told my kids instead of bringing a toy from home to exchange, they could each make something....Taran chose to decorate some dish towels.

I serged some 2"by WOF fabric strips for him...(sorry no 6 year old's on a serger with a super cutting knife)
Taran then made the long straight stitch to form the ruffle.

He pulled one thread to get the desired amount of pouff.

We pinned it on the towel.

He sewed this on too.

Here is the towel with the ruffles.

Then a little red ric rac made this towel high fashion!
This little dish towel was the feature of the day at the site Ruffles and Stuff, you can check out her cute site by clicking the button on the right. It was also featured here on Someday crafts, and also seen here on craft gossip....thanks guys! Also seen here on Sew What.
