Toddler Ruffle Sweatshirt

Ok...I really wish I had more pictures of this and that I took pictures while creating it. Unfortunately this was made before my blogging days and I didn't. I am showing it to you know because my crafting room is packed away during a move and I am in a creative freeze- it is painful - ha ha! This picture really doesn't do this cute little sweater justice. In person, it was adorable. I found the turquoise fabric at a thrift store and one day decided to play around and see what I could create with it. I took one of my daughter's sweaters and used it as a "pattern" to create this one. I then used white bias tape to quickly finish the sleeves and hem. Next, I cut two strips of the turquoise fabric about three inches wide and twice the length of the sweater from the neck edge to the bottom edge. Then cut two pieces of white knit (from an old t-shirt) about 2 inches wide and the same length as the turquoise strips. I ruffled the two pieces, layered the white on top of the turquoise and sewed them down the center front edges. I also used some extra bias tape to create a small tie in the center front. Again, I wish I had photos to document this process so it made more sense. I can't wait to get back to my craft room, so there will be many projects ahead I promise!
