Easy as pie...

I've never really understood that saying...but dressing up this bag is definitely easier than making a pie. The bag itself is sold at Joanns/Michaels for like $5. Then first I sewed the ruffle on the top (just black 2" grosgrain ribbon) same ruffle as shown in this post.
Next I found a bowl the same size as I wanted the completed flower to be. I traced that circle out 4 times on my fabulous damask fabric and cut them out. Next I folded each circle once in half and then in half again and glued them all down in the flower shape. Any fabric glue will work.
The finishing touch was a big black button sewn in the center.


  1. Linds that looks amazing! I love your spin on it :)

  2. A simple bag that has 'you' all over it. So cute and so simple. Wow, you two are so amazing!
