For the Ruffle:

Cut the ruffle fabric 3" x WOF. Sew a rolled hem along the length of one side of the ruffle strip. Press.

Using a gathering foot (or gathering stitch) gather the long raw edge of the ruffle strip. I love to use my gathering foot because it creates a permanent gather as it stitches. Then you just cut the desired length! It's super fast!

After the ruffle strip has been gathered, zig zag the raw edge with the gathers to prevent fraying.

Pin the ruffle to the bottom edge of the towel. Make sure that the gathers are positioned far enough under the towel so they will catch in the seam. We will be sewing right along the hem that is on the towel. Fold the raw edges of the ruffle sides under and sew a little seam.

Sew, with matching thread, along the existing seam of the towel hem.

Sew a second hem along the edge of the towel. This will insure the ruffle is secure and will lay nice after washing.

Position the lace where you want it. Originally I was going to use pink lace, but I ended up loving the white. Pin the lace and then sew along both edges and sides, tucking the lace under on the raw edges.

You can see how the edge of the ruffle has a little seam. Give the ruffle a little pressing so it lays flat.
