Calico Double Ruffle Rose Shabby Chic Bag !

Calico Double Ruffle Rose Shabby Chic Bag !
I made this bag for my friend Margaret's belated birthday gift .
I hope she likes it, I mailed it the other day . Its' made with unbleached calico, has a lace top and a double ruffle with pink       rose that can be removed when bag needs washing or you can change the roses or different flowers for different looks. It is lined and has a big pocket and a pocket for a mobile phone. If you would like to make one, I 've done a tutorial its for my linen shabby chic bag but the measurements are the same except it has a double ruffle and the rose is in the middle of the ruffle.I made a whole and sewed around it a bit like a button hole. I was going to put an eyelet but couldn't find it in my sewing room ,next time I will put 2 eyelets one in the middle of the ruffle and the other just under the bottom ruffle so the stem can be threaded through. I hope that makes sense.  http://simpleliving-sherrie.blogspot.com/2011/01/my-shabby-chic-linen-bag.html
