I am sure that you have noticed that Ruffles are the latest trend in the Fashion see ruffles on dresses, skirts, tee shirts, tank tops and even bathing suits (not that you would see me a ruffled bathing suit..HA!).

I am not really what I would call a "Fu Fu" type of girl, I mean I am not into Lacey, frilly things..BUT I do love the RUFFLES....I have seen some really cute bags with ruffles too..SOOooooo if you know me , you know I have to make one! here is my take on the ruffled bag. I made a smaller size bag out of white denim and then stitched rows of linen ruffles around it, made a long handle so I could wear it cross shoulder and sewed some vintage lace over the handle, stitched on a shell vintage button and of course a flower and some vintage lace...LOVE IT! I really wanted something smaller and cross shoulder to take with me went we went to the wine country so I could have my hands free for better wine tasting!

ADORE THIS! So, very cute. I wish I had a chance to go to one of Terry's classes. That is on my wish list. Can't wait to see you at Les Sirens. Have you started with your swaps & stuff? I haven't. Just got my shell order today so I hope to get motivated soon. It's really bad to be a land locked mermaid in the middle of Texas. HUGS! Charlene

I LOVE that bag! I am Karen's Georgia friend and stopped by via her blog! That is the cutest darn bag. Great job with the ruffles! Have a blessed day! HUGS!

I WANT ONE!!!!!!!!!! You did a great job! Love the fact that it is over the shoulder for hands free. I saw a bag similar to this one & thought it so adorable. I sent you an email telling you that the 3 X 3 squares are on the way to you today. Those were really fun to do & I can't wait to see what magic you create. Our friend Karen says that your work is amazing!!!! I can't wait to meet you at the event. And I can't wait to get out of this heat!!!! HUGS! Charlene
