Quick Update

Hope you're having a great Monday. I did manage to finish up a project. Mark one more off the list. This is a handbag I picked up at a bag sale so cost was near nothing. I made the embellishment from leftovers of other projects.

 Here is the after. I made three large ruffles, gathered them, and used hot glue to attach them. I wanted the edges to fray to give it a more casual, messy look. I cut the first strip smaller and gathered it in the center to top it off. I may add a small piece of ribbon to cover my thread and add a little more color. I haven't decided yet.

                                                                  A look at the back.

At least I managed to get SOMETHING accomplished today!!! Time for a quick nap....giggle!!!!!
