I'm not going to lie, I'm a little tired of this bag pattern. As much as I love it, I think I've made so many of them that I'm a little burnt out. Plus, I had bought this lovely Secret Garden (Sandi Henderson) in Utah in October to make it with. I've had ideas about embellishing my signature bag with some ruffles, but wasn't sure what I wanted to do exactly. And the reality is, the bag is super functional, and I love that about it.
Then one Sunday my cute friend had a leather bag with a two toned double ruffle across the front. I had found it! I took a picture on my iPod and figure out what to do to make it work.
I really love the way it turned out, I might do a few things different the next time, like gather it a little less, it was hard to sew on without a walking foot.
I love this fabric! It's Sandi Henderson's Secret Garden. The interior and contrasting ruffle and strap is one of my new favorite tone on tone prints - Garden Gate (I think). It reminds me a bit of Henna Garden, another favorite.
