I just made one and I love it!! Thanks! I'm new to sewing though and when I pulled it tight and knotted it off (on both sides) it still goes you know what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks again!

Thank you all for your sweet comments...I hope you girls make some fabulous ruffle necklaces!

Marylola, To make your ruffle tight make sure the material is in the proper position for securing, then insert the needle in one side then insert in the other side and pull. Do the back stitch at the last stitch, then cut the thread. Remember pull it nice and tight before you start to secure it with the stitch! Hope that helps :)
