A friend of mine looks after the seasonal decorations at our church and she asked if I’d make three different coloured gingham table toppers for the coffee area. She wanted them square with ruffles. I was hoping to find cotton fabric with a large print but was only able to find polyester, small print.
I didn’t want to just gather the ruffle (it’s not my favourite thing to do) so decided to make my own knife pleat ruffles. I wish I’d learned this method years ago.
They are 12” square. Her plan is to put vases of artificial tulips on each one to make it springy.
