I love me a new purse....or even maybe a new tote...
I recently saw on a blog party an idea for a no sew tote...
it was the cutest thing I ever did see - so I decided to try
my hand at making one...and boy was it easy as pie...
I wish I had written the blog down but if anyone knows who
first posted about this fun ruffled no sew tote - I would love
her name so I can give her credit
here is my finished tote
I had some blank 12 x 12 canvas tote bags that I had planned on
doing a yudu screen print on and well never managed to get er' done.
So according to the instructions you are to cut strips of fabric and just use a glue gun to adhere and scrunched them onto the bag....
I did things a bit differently - I cut my 3 inch strips on the fold (so it has a finished edge) then I sewed the ruffles on the computer that way I was guaranteed a semi-uniform ruffle THEN I glued them onto the tote...
I added some fun matching satin ribbon to the top and a ruffled rosette
to finish her up.
Do you love it?
I sure do and have some new fabric ready to make my second one.
BTW- I didn't do that back...I plan to but for now it is blank canvas...
