Non-textile projects can be a fun beginner’s project or satisfy one’s desire to make an inexpensive, fun accessory. This week we are offering a how-to which anyone could make. Our very own magnificent intern David, who goes by a curious alias in his new online magazine Open Lab, was kind enough to share with us his “Make A Victorian Ruffle” how-to this week. This isn’t your ordinary neck piece either, this coffee filter bunch of joy is a lovely and thrifty project.
Check out the How-to here!
