I purchased an Amy Butler purse pattern a few years ago, and FINALLY finished it yesterday!! The pattern doesn't call for ruffles, but I was inspired by my daughter's ruffled purse from Children's Place and "copied" it. I used linen fabric and some beaded trim that came in a scrapbook kit. (I often use my scrapbook supplies for much more than paper projects!) I added some twisted fabric flowers to add a pop of color. This will be my last ruffled purse, as it turned out to be quite time consuming! Take a look:
Also, I want to thank Ruth and Susan for leaving comments on my last post to win a purse organizer. Since only two people left comments, they BOTH win a purse organizer!! Thanks Ruth and Susan! I'll be in touch with you to let your choose your fabrics!
