- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

I really am ' SEW" challenged, can you help?
I come up with the darndest things, and then can't figure out how to do it.. It is the whole hoop thing...
I remembered I had some eyelet material I never used on another one of those " darndest things", which never got completed. So I have a lovely piece of eyelet material, with an edge which "I THINK" will make a dandly ruffle.
Here is where I am sew challenged...my dilemma.
My hoop is 10", so I am "thinking" which got me into this, that I need at least a double amount of a circle out of the material. 20", am I correct so far? So now, I need to make a circle out of a rectangle piece of material...oh bother....or not? It occured to me that the ruffle (end) is a straight piece so I can't do this can I?
What I want to do is not cut up the material but once for the circle, and not have to sew and attach things...
because I am "Sew Challenged "
Is there a way that I can cut a straight piece and make it ruffle?
I'm going to crochet for a while and leave this be, do some more grand thinking....HA!
