Even More Ruffles!

So I am almost done with my Bottled Rainbow square for this week! I'm excited to show you guys! I give it to you quilters out there.. It's alot harder than it looks (at least to me)..

I found a couple of old shirts of Keira's the other day that had a few stains on them.. (eww)!!!
I couldn't get the stains out, so I decided to cover them up.. Hehehe!
And this is what I came up with:

What do you think??

Would you like to make your own?

Well now's your chance!
Go find some of your kid's old shirts (I know you have some! Everyone does!)
You can even use some fabric scraps for this!

I cut the strips for the ruffles 2.5 inches x 9 inches

I serged all 4 edges of the strips (if you don't have a serger you can use a zig zag stitch)
The use your sewing machine to make the ruffles
and place them on your shirt like you would like them to make sure they look right before you sew!

Start with the bottom ruffle and pin it on
(Haha, you see the stains in this picture??)
Sew this ruffle on, make sure to back stitch at the beginning and end to make sure it stays
Continue to do this with your other ruffles until you are done

And there you have it! Your "new" ruffle tee!!

*By the way, Don't forget about my giveaway in the post below!!!*
