I am so excited to share two projects with you today. I am a self taught sewer and still consider myself a bit of a novice so anything that can make the simple look like it was a lot of work appeals to me. I recently found this Ruffle Fabric and fell in love instantly.
For this project I also used 100% cotton gray fabric.
Measure your table top length and width add 1 inch to each measurement.
Example- My table is 40"x20" so my fabric is 41"x21"
Cut your plain cotton fabric to those dimensions. This piece will be the top of your table skirt.
Cut 2 pieces of ruffle fabric to your length measurement by how ever long you want your skirt to be. I chose to make mine 6 ruffles long, it was a lot easier than measuring it out when I could just count ruffles!
Cut 2 pieces of ruffle fabric to your width measurement (also by how ever long you want)
When cutting ruffle fabric, smooth ruffles in opposite directions along the line you want to cut. Cut down the stretchy back fabric in the middle of this section. Cutting to close to a ruffle will leave you without a seam allowance.
You now have one large rectangle of cotton fabric and 4 strips of ruffle fabric.
The ruffles are very forgiving in this step so you don't need to worry to much about their direction until we have all the panels connected. With right sides together attach each strip of ruffles to it's matching side of cotton with a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
When sewing your ruffles to your cotton place your fabric so you are viewing the back of the ruffle fabric. There are lines that show where each ruffle begins. Sew as close to this line as possible so you don't have a gap above your top ruffle and the cotton fabric.
Your rectangle should now be surrounded by ruffles and each corner should look like this.
Match each corner of ruffle fabric to it;s partner right sides together and pin. Make sure your ruffles are all smooth and in the correct direction! Sew from the corner or the cotton fabric to the bottom of your last ruffle.
