So for about a year now, I've had this little picture of a ruffle tote bag hanging on my computer in my studio. I always thought it was cute, but never had a free minute to experiment with the design. Fast forward to about two weeks ago. I get an email from a friend that read something like this..."I love this (picture of cute bag) for it's straps. I love this (picture of another cute bag) for the fabric....and I love THIS BAG!" And what was it? Oh yes, the very same ruffly bag idea that I've been looking at for over a year! I took this as a sign. I needed to do it NOW! So I told her I was not only up for the challenge, but excited to give it a whirl. Here is what I came up with:
|It makes me want to twirl around!|
|I kept the ruffles to one side...didn't want to get TOO crazy!|
|I put a magnetic snap on this bag. I wanted it to have a slouchy,hobo look. |
But I do plan to design a double handle- tote style with a zipper for all of you zipper fans!
|Up close and personal with the ruffles :)|
|My 6 year old took these pictures to show the size of the bag on me. |
She may not understand cropping and backgrounds but you get a nice view of my garage.
Sparkly clean thanks to the hubs :)
|I'll have to tell the hubs to get out and pressure wash the driveway. It doesn't look sparkly like the garage!|
But Spencer doesn't seem to mind. He'll sleep anywhere!
