Ruffle Bumsies How To
If you aren't making your babies bums ruffly by now, here's how I made mine. Now you have no excuses to not ruffle that darling round baby rump.
Here's what you will need:
- Onesies of your choice. I simply used a package of white onesies, but there are some colored $3 onesies at Wal-Mart. I found that out after I made mine.
- Several different fat quarters to choose from.
- Scissors and/or cutting mat and rotary cutter.
- Sewing machine
And here's how I did mine:
1. First I begged my cute friend Jackie to let me come over and serge my strips of fabric. If you don't have a serger, don't worry about it because this can still be done! You can do one of two things. Either cut your strips of fabric with pinking shears to the size you want. When it's washed, it creates a little raggy edges that are really cute on that baby bum. Or, cut your fabric twice the width of the finished ruffle you want and simple place right sides together and sew down the long edge. Turn right side out and then continue on with step 3 of the tutorial. (Make sense? Feel free to ask questions. I won't bite!)
7. Repeat for the third ruffle and then TA-DA! You just made a darling ruffle bumsie!
*There are so many variations on this. You can use all the same fabric or multiple fabrics. You can make your widths of your ruffles smaller or bigger. You can have more than three ruffles. I think that this would be cute with five 1" ruffles smashed close together with the pinked edges. This would make one fluffy and ruffley bum!
