Jordan's New Ruffle

I got Jordan some of those things that you put
under the bed legs to raise the bed.
Extra space is always a blessing in our home!
This way he could store more things under his bed.

This made the box spring look extra hideous.
But the floor underneath his bed got cleaned and vaccumed!
I got the idea to make a bed ruffle.
I've never done this before so I was clueless.

I started a quilt for him and never finished so I got that fabric and
cut it into squares.  This fabric
is also the fabric I used to make his curtains so
it was nice that it would match.

A friend I saw this summer gave me lots of fabric too. 
I was able to use a bunch of that.
Thankyou Mercy!

Jordan helped me iron and cut the big pieces once they
were sewn.

It was fun working with Jordan.

The real fun part was putting it on his bed!

Jordan spends lots of time on his bed.  Reading,  practising guitar and wrestling
with Titus.  I like it higher and it's new "ruffle."

This was Titus this morning.  He looked
so cozy!  Had to take some pictures.
Notice the little scratches.  They're from running into
prickers while sledding.
The life of a little boy :)


  1. It turned out great! I would love to know how you did it!

  2. I love it! I have a thing for patchwork :) 8 boys! And here I thought I had handful with 4 boys! You are super mom.
