A Little Bag Love

Gift1smaller2

Everyonce in a while, I enjoy letting someone else do the hard work and use a pattern. Well, let me clarify, every once in a while I enjoy using one of Sis Boom’s patterns, by the delightfully wonderful Jennifer Paganelli and incredibly talented Carla Crim. This spring I had the hankering for a new bag, so I bought the Rosettta Ruffle Bag PDF Pattern. This bag goes together pretty quickly, and comes in three sizes and three variations on the ruffles. Since I like a more finished look, I went for the double thickness ruffle. This option uses quite a bit more fabric, but, in my opinion, the end result is worth it. I get compliments on this bag every time I carry it.

The fabric was from my stash, and I can’t tell you much about it, other than I liked the colors. 😉 Ha! And… I was in a hurry and didn’t take time to put pockets in it(I mean, it was “just” for me…), in a bag this size(lg) that was a big mistake. Take the time, trust me on this. Flowers are just ruffled fabric and covered buttons. The picture? Ha! It was taken with my phone, sitting on my lap, up against the dashboard of the van on the way to the state basketball tournament. Which, I just have to add in, the Fort Smith Patriots won. Go Patriots!

Like this bag? Head on over to Sis Boom, she can fix you right up!
