Well, it's 8 p.m. on Wednesday, and my totally unique never-been-seen-on-the-interwebs DIY project for this week is not finished. So I feel like a kid the day before a science project is due, which is the point at which you get your parents to do it for you. In my case, I will feature someone else's DIY project again this week. That cute ruffled pillow above? Not mine.
Ruffles are a big trend right now, both for clothes and for home decor. Fortunately, they are also easy to make - run a long stitch through a strip of fabric and pull the thread. Here's the gamut of what you can do yourself.
Merrilee from Mermag created a ruffled pillow tutorial for Kelly+Olive.
Photographer Ashley Ann via UCreate used a similar technique with contrasting fabric.
Add ruffles to a t-shirt with a tutorial from Tea Rose Home.
Turn a ruffled shirt into a pillow at Homemade by Jill.
