For All You Lovely Lolita's Out there
it came out flat-ish...that's because I had to held it down with my video game cases to make sure it woun't pel off...to be honest, this was my first attempt, and I was just winging it as i go....OK! NOTE: ThatI don't suggest using glue for this...it's been a few days and my felt was very stiff...so i'm heartbroken...but this is just a fare warning that you should sew this instead

    ok...cut out a long strip...how long?...not sure but enough to make a ruffle....you can use the back of a t-shirt or go out to buy the fabric yourself..but fair warning, if you buy a fabric and it has frays at the edges...sew them, dont glue'em... cause the ruffles wont come out well if you do (it'll have a fan kinda edge...unless that's what you want, then by all means)

    ok grab that threaded needle and (a lesson from my yo-yo necklace tut.) just scrunch it up onto the needle.
    If it doesn't come out the way you like it at first. do this: keep the threaded needle by and then by (your hand) sruntch it into a ruffle affect..then push you needle through the folds....if you want to check how long each stitch should be when making more, you can loosen it (no worries if tightened it'll go back.
