Here’s a little ruffled bag I made for Zia’s cousin Makayla, back around Christmastime. Makayla is the queen of all things stylish. I desperately hoped the bag would make the cut.

It did, thanks to the addition of a couple of no-fail elements. #1. Kitties are crucial to making any item Makayla-esque.

#2. A bit of personalization never hurts. Though it’s hard to read in the radiant Kansas sun, I stitched her name on the strap. (Ok, yes, I cheated. I used my new machine’s handy-dandy built-in alphabet font stitch.)

The fabric had a sweetly embroidered pattern. I cut close to the selvedge edge to get a strip for the ruffles without embroidery.

 Voila! And it’s off to see the queen!
