Thank cheerleader Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy

Today is the day 11 and I am Ready to ruffle!!!!!!!!!!!

This is how much I love ruffles!!

Now onto the new ruffle especially for this event.........
I used 
1 1/2 yards of Mokuba ribbon

Bast the ribbons together along the edge and gather.  Starting in the center carefully sew the ruffle  around and around and around until
 WALA
