Ruffle Flower

Good Day Ladies,
I've been working a lot in the cabinets here and at night, when is quiet around, I like to do small projects, as this flower I did with left over cotton I had. To not throw the tiny piece of fabric out, I did this ruffle flower to attach on a pillow, purse, blouse, wherever with like it! it's so simple to do it. But I didn't take any pictures of it, but I'll do it next time, when I'll make more.
Now, I'm thinking also about making a big one, the same size of a pillow, and make a round pillow! I'll try it for sure! The crochet flower I have done a long ago, when mom thought me how to, but right now I'm more into sewing. Maybe in the future...
I'm glad I didn't post this one yesterday, because this morning, when the kids had gone to school and i was having my coffee and checking email, blog, etc, I decided to take a look on some blogs I love to visit, and coincidentally, Tina, from Rubies Place has posted one very similar to this. Well, I love that lady! Don't you? Everything she does, how she treats us, absolutely everything about Tina and her Blog. I'm so glad (and I'm sure you all are too!) to have found her and has Tina as a friend! She is creative, sweet, amazing Mom and woman! What I found so interesting is even though we are so far away, we have so much in common. Not only Tina, but many women I've met through blogging!
I love to see how creative people around the world are, using their imagination, even with a little piece of fabric, plastic, wood...
This is for you Tina and all the women I've met here!I wish I could give you all a BIG HUG as a compliment for all the creativity things you all have been doing. And until I can write and do this, I'll be eternally grateful for meeting you all!
Have a lovely day and weekend for some of you!
Li

Hi Li. Ruffles are everywhere. I saw Tina's post as well. You are right she is so lovely. She has earned every one of her followers as she responds to all comments and takes a personal interest in every blog she follows. I love her. I just found a great blog call Lady Pamela's cottage and she was sewing ruffles too. Here is the link for her, I thought you would like it.

Love your ruffly flower and the crochetted one. I just picked up a huge crochet blanket from goodwill-I am starting to be a real fan.

Have a great day over in the ruffle capital of Alberta!

Demo please Li! What a gorgeous flower. How do you fray the edges, do you just tear the fabric? See I really do need a demo, pleeeeze.
