Step 3: Ruffles

To make the ruffles start from Side - 'A'
Fold down one corner about 3" and tack it under in side ' B' ( this is the back) secure it well...do it for all the ruffles you make. Tack close the 'v' point a bit. Make small pleats and secure with tacks . Stop sewing the ruffles about 1/3 of the way up. now start the other end the same way but do only one or 2 small pleats. Now drape it around your model or dummy and  mark where to make the pleats around the neck...It should be slightly down on the sides of the neck...check picture. Now pleat it length width wise and sew a couple of machine stitches across to secure it. Drape it across your model and pin where the bow would come. Also mark where you would want the press buttons to be ( this is how the warmer will be fixed around your neck securely so get nice strong tic buttons.  Sew in the Tic buttons underneath and now make your bow.
So nice. THANKS!!!
Hi there! This looks like my scarf design :D <br>I always have them available, just contact me if there isn't a listing.<br>www.nikkisic.etsy. com <br>
<p>Great! You have them knitted? I saw a girl wearing it somewhere and this is my figuring out of it. As I can't knit, I did it in fleece. Its quicker too :-)</p>
This is a very nice instructible, and a beautiful neck warmer
<p>Thank you :-)</p>
cool ..I like it
That is SOOO Cute! :) Good job Shazni! You're so creative - love your style!
Thanks! Just saw yours too...going to make some boot toppers for my daughter too! only I'm going to add it to socks :-) We hardly wear boots here . :-D
That is darling! So for an adult you would need 1/2 a yard plus 30"? Oooh, it's just so cute :)
BTW....My friend did one...so for an adult about 75&quot; -80&quot; should do. :-) let me know if you do it and how it came out :-)
well i don't know how they sell fabrics there...but for adult's too you by 1/2 yard of 90&quot; width fabric...that is the fabric i have shown....it would be perfect. just sew the the edges first...drape it around you ...if you like you could pin the ruffles before you sew it and check. This measurement makes the warmer come up to my waist. It is a real darling! :-)
lovely...i would do it with a soft materiel as where i have it's warm as it is...if i wear something in fleece...I'll boil in 2 minutes!
