Can you believe Easter is 1 week away ! Oh I have soo many cute things that I would like to make for our grandchildren. One is this adorable little "No Sew Ruffle Tote" from Jamie over at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom ! She does wonderful tutorials and shares adorable patterns for your little ones. If you're not already a follower -- you should check out the wonderful things there !
Above is my "mini" version of the No Sew Ruffle Tote. I actually made two this evening - One for Angelina and one for Jenna (and I'm still considering making one for Emily too)... Jamie's tutorial is just perfect -- check it out !
Ruffle Tutorial from "Ruffles And Stuff" blog - except I only stitched one line of straight stitch with my machine (instead of two).
Also, instead of using ribbon to trim the top of the bag, I made a finish piece from the fabric stash. I cut a 3 inch wide strip of fabric, ironed in half wrong sides together, then opened up the fabric and ironed each 1/2 side toward the center. I used my machine to top stitch the trim (and don't forget to put your tension back to normal before you attempt this -- I forgot once... oh well, the tension on that top stitching is a little crazy.
Oh, before I go, I was out yesterday with my daughter-in-law/friend and our youngest DGS Ethan -- we tried on some funny bunny ears at the store -- isn't he just the cutiest little boy ? He is 15 months now and such a joy to be around!
Have a great week everyone -- and thanks for stopping by !
