My Mom bought these fabrics when we were in Holmes County over Christmas. She wanted a bag made to give to a friend. So a few weeks ago I finally got it made for her. Now she has it for whenever she wants to give it away!
I used a canvas bag from Walmart that I already had and just added ruffles, cut the old handles off and made new ones. I saw this idea here. Gotta be the most simple way to make a ruffled bag! I just used a rolled hem on my serger to finish the bottoms of the ruffles. One of these days I'm gonna get me a ruffler for my sewing machine and then it will really be easy.
