Ruffled Storage Container

Here is another baby gift idea.  Really this could be used to "fru fru" any storage container. This is very easy to do.
1. Take a long strip of material twice as long as what you are ruffling. ( I actually sewed 2 pieces together to make it longer.)
2. Then sew a straight seam the length of your fabric.
3. Pull the thread a little at a time until you start getting ruffles.
4. After you get the ruffle fullness that you want use hot glue and glue it around the box of your choice.  I used a small plastic bin. 

Then just let dry and fill with what you would like. As you can tell this was going to a baby shower. I filled it with a blanket made from the same material and also lotions and soaps and cream (not pictured)


  1. That's pretty, and it looks like it's so easy to make. It would be nice to use it as a gift holder instead of using a gif bag, would it then be a gift box? how cool! Love your blog, I'm a new follower. Come check mine out.

  2. So cute! I am loving ruffles right now!
