I’ve got a fun cute little project to share with ya today!
Who doesn’t need an extra little bag to take to the market or the library or by the entry to store things ready to grab as you head out the door?
I admit that I do have a lot of bags…I like them…I like to make them and buy them and use them and look at them and see them hanging so pretty!
This EASY RUFFLE BAG version is super easy to whip up & adds just a little whimsy and fun to a basic bag!
You can make a little tote base on your own or grab a pre-made one up at the local craft store for cheapo. I had this blank canvas bag that I picked up at a garage sale last season for a buck!
But…it was sooo boring so I knew I needed to spice it up a bit
Bring on the ruffles!
All ya need to do is grab some fabric strips twice the width of your tote, ruffle them and then sew to the bag itself (maybe even just use some jelly roll strips!) I’ve seen where some folks will even just fabric glue the ruffles in place.
I adore ruffles and these frayed ones are just too cute! You can add as many layers of ruffles you’d like
and then maybe a scrappy flower too if ya want
More bags on the horizon to add to my ever-expanding collection!
Now off I go to the library with this ruffle-y little tote
(won’t I look so cute – ha??!!)
