Super Cute Sewing Project – Learn to Sew Ruffles

I recently stumbled across a super cute blog called Crazy Little Projects, and her “Learn to Sew” series.  I have some basic sewing knowledge, but my machine and sewing needles are definitely dusty, so I was excited to find her series.

I am probably going to jump right into Lesson # 5, “How to Sew Ruffles”… because… well, I have an almost 6 year old daughter who LOVES everything ruffle!  I personally want to do some tailoring to my daughter’s blouses, but the ruffle tote bag is really cute too!  Check it out:
