This pattern for this bag is the Petunia Bag from Izzy & Ivy. OH! How I LOVE all their patterns! If only those dresses would come in my size....and I wouldn't look ridiculous wearing them. HAA HAA! I think most of the sizes are even too little for my daughter. If I use one of their adorable patterns, I might even get over my issue of sewing clothes.
Anywho! Back to the bag...

|A little bit closer-up of ruffles|
|The inside. Next time I will remember to change the bobbin thread...oops!|
The fabric I used for the outside is a taffeta. The fabric was a WONDERFUL birthday present from a friend. It came with many yards of other wonderful fabrics as well. The inside is a silky navy blue--also part of the gift..
I've made a few bags from Izzy & Ivy Patterns and the instructions are very clear with lots of illustrations.
When I first finished the bag, I thought I'd make a flower. I tried few different styles of flowers that I had around. I didn't like it as much as I thought I would.
Enjoy your weekend!
