Vintage Sheets and Ruffles

Girls love ruffles. They add a fun, feminine texture to our home and wardrobe. I found lots of cute examples of ruffled vintage sheets all over the internet. Hope you enjoy them and then tell me your favorite.
A Ruffled Home

Let's start with a cute ruffly pillow. Vintage Sheet Blog creator, Jennifer, designed this home accent and tutorial. She kept the edges raw so it is a very forgiving project (my favorite kind.)

This is another cute pillow, this time with the ruffles around the border. And, guess what-another great tutorial! I love the little blue bows on the pink and white pillow.

Ruffles in the bathroom?-Heck yah! I love the little ruffles on the bottom of this shower curtain.

Ruffles can create some functional fun too. I love the ruffle on this stuffie hammock.

One of the most popular Vintage Sheet Blog posts ever was Melissa's post about her vintage sheet ruffle quilt. Love it!

You may remember Maddie's cute Nap Mat that she shared on VSB a while ago. I love the ruffled flowery goodness.

One more cute home detail; a window valence. I love the way the light filters through the white flowery ruffles.

A Ruffled Outfit
No shocker here, girls look cute in ruffles. But, look how cute the little touch of vintage sheet cutes up this little jean skirt.

Oh my goodness, look at the ruffly bottom on this little romper.

Holy ruffles, Batman! Look at these twin girls with all their ruffles. Speechless.

Here is another great tutorial from Lyssa. I love an easy sewing project that uses what I already have on hand.

How about a skirt wth a matching headband? Love the pink checks.

Isn't she cute? It is so easy to whip up a ruffle skirt for a little girl. Fun for dress up or play.

Star Wars AND vintage sheet ruffles? No way! I read the comments on this one and it is funny how crazy people get about cutting Star Wars sheets.
source
I would totally wear this skirt. If, we ever have cool temperatures in California again. Is it hot or is it just me?

source
Our last dress is a cute plaid dress with the perfect ruffled details. No one would ever know this darling dress was from a thrifted sheet.

The Ruffled Details
Maybe head to toe ruffles is a little much for you. How about this cute bag?  Actually, she has several cute vintage sheet ruffle bags, this was just my favorite.
source
I'm going to a blog conference in a few weeks. I totally need to wear this necklace
source
As long as you are making a ruffled statement, how about vintage sheet ruffle notecards? I'm looking at my vintage sheet scraps right now. hmmmm.

Are you ruffled up yet? Okay, what is your must-have ruffle project?
