Shopping recently, I saw lots of ruffles on tops and purses. Thinking, "how can I add some to my wardrobe" I decided to update my sling bag . Easy to do, I started with an old skirt. Cut my pattern out. I used a 6 3/4" plate to cut 2 ruffles
One ruffle is the size of the plate and the other uses the plate as the inside edge. Play around with it until you get the effect you like. I layered my ruffles on top of the purse front and basted them down. My skirt has raw edges and seams so I decided to go with the look, but you might want to hem your ruffles. I continued to follow my sling bag instructions and finished the purse.
I used an old belt for the strap. The front uses the skirt pocket.
The back of the sling bag has more raw edge detail from the skirt I used. The fabric is linen.
