Add a ruffle to add to your linens. It’s as simple as cutting a length of fabric at least twice the length of the ruffle you need. Stitch pieces together for extra length. Fold the strip in half lengthwise and stitch two lines of basting along the cut edges. Pull on the bobbin thread to gather the ruffle and then stitch the ruffle on the wrong side of your project. Cover over the raw edges by hand stitching a ribbon over the top.
