Red and White Striped Cotton Fabric

Sewing Machine




1.  Cut a 1” by 45” piece of striped red and white fabric.  I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $.58 for a 6 inch piece.

3.  Starting at the bottom and working your way up pin the ruffled fabric in place the shape of a candy cane.  Then sew down the middle on the same stitch you ruffled the fabric with pulling the pins out as you go.

  1. Oh. My. Word. Awesome idea! Even cuter because of the ruffles. Perfect Christmas casual outfit, and the hair bows just make the look complete. 🙂

  2. What a cute shirt!! I love the idea. My girls are probably a little old for it, but my grand-daughters would love it.

  3. The shirt is so cute. But really, how do you get anything done with that sweet little face around you all day?
