I couldn’t decide what to make with it. I finally made a little tote. It’s so simple but the craziness of the ruffles make it look like I put a lot of work into it.
And since ruffles love lace, I added a few touches of lace.
This bag is as simple as it looks. I’m just going to show you a few of the details of it.
The shoulder strap:
To make it super ruffly and comfy to sling over your shoulder, cut out 1 long strip, measuring 46” by 7”.
I trimmed the edges down and added some lace binding. I used my birthday present (which has been mostly sitting for over 3 months now…eek.) It’s a bias tape maker, but since lace doesn’t have a grain, I just used it as a tape maker.
I didn’t line the bag since the crazy fabric has a cool stitching pattern on the reverse side. So I bound the seam allowances instead. A pretty little touch.
