The ruffle bum is the best! And I think now I am realizing that I already showed you these. Oops! Sorry! Anyway, the tutorial won for the best tutorial in 2009...on someone's blog!
Ok and then I just finished this diaper and wipes clutch today--finally! This is the outside. The pattern has you make a cute fabric flower to put on, but I think the fabric is pretty dang cute and I didn't want to cover up the flower.
I saw a really cute tutorial on little birdie secrets about doing a cute rosette with wired ribbon. So I went and bought some wired ribbon and when I went to the tutorial, I realized my ribbon was too wide to do the one I saw. So...I improvised and came up with this! I made it for Molly to go with her easter dress.
There really isn't a science about it. I just pulled the wire on one side and played with the ribbon til I liked it. Then I took a needle and thread and did a few stitches up and down to keep it where I wanted it. Then for the middle I squished the ribbon til I liked it and glue gunned it! Simple simple.
