This is made with the Flirtatious Designer Fabric again. For the handles, I got lazy and pulled out my Striped Grosgrain ribbon. I put two together and stitched up the sides.
Here's a close up. Because I had put batting in between the lining and the outer fabric, it felt a little bulky, especially at the top. So I thought I would give the buttonhole function on my machine a try. Holy Batman! That is one cool function! Oh, did you also see what I did with the ruffle? I took two scrap strips of fabric, put them at right angles to each other and sewed at 45-degrees. This way, the two pieces would be joined to become one long strip. Perfect for me to do some ruffle/gathering.
I used the Fun Flowers die again for embellishment. Again, as before, I had lined the fabric with some fusible interfacing to make it just a little stiffer. The button is Melon Mambo from the Ice Cream Parlor suite, which you can find on the Clearance Rack.MY STORE. Which you're there, check out the other really awesome stuff at a fraction of the original cost.
Thanks for visiting! Have a wonderful weekend!!!
