I Love Ruffles!

I decided to make a tote bag with ruffles for my Color Palette Challenge!  Color Challenge that Judy L. and Vicki Welsh are hosting together..You can find more info if you go to the button on the side of my blog!  I want to learn more about colors...Both Vicki and Judy are so inspiring to me!

This is the Color Palette Vicki Welsh gave us to work with!  Nice huh! 

I wanted to work with my stash!  So off I went looking through..and then I went to work...and made ruffles...here they are!

I put them on a canvas bag..

The put handles on!  I decided to put on a funky posies flower too!  I washed and dried the bag to make sure it held up in the tumble of everyday life!  It did!!!  Woo hoo!

I had fun!  That is what it was all about...and thanks to Judy and Vicki, I have a new bag..and some family members have asked I make them one so I am off to do that... (pictures are not that clear...I took with an IPhone, didn't get out the Nikon...)

Very nice! I love that you used the colors in different proportions from the palette.
