This next one was made for a firefighter and his wife (note the fabric). Perfect safety reminder for the grill master, no? There’s no how-to, but it looks utterly fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants do-able.

Okay, more ruffles. The tutorial  from Very Interesting at Instructables is VERY detailed, and totally customizeable.
