Ruffles and Lace

So, is it ok to wear white after Labor Day?  Or not?  How about off-white?  Not that I really care, just thought I'd ask.  I've been wanting to make a ruffly-messy-shabby bag for a while, so over Labor Day weekend, I got busy.  I really don't like pink, but that's what I ended up using for the inside.  I totally messed up on the inside pocket, but it does have a zipper and it DOES work, so it's ok.  It's big, but that just means it will hold more!  (NOT always a good thing.) 

Now, I can't decide if I like it?  I mean, I like it, I just don't know if it's "me".  Anyway, here it is in all it's shabby ruffly goodness.

I put a pin on the back of the flower so I could take it off if I wanted to.

I got all the fabric for cheap at the WalMart.  I'm pretty sure the lace belonged to my grandma.

  11. Hi there! I just found you via Pinterest. This bag is soooo awesome!! I don't don't know if you noticed or not but your posts are popping directly to your comments instead of allowing readers to read the post first. Blogger is having some issues with a new function for our comments. It hasn't worked out all the kinks yet. If you want to fix this issue, just go to your settings>comments and choose "pop up window" instead of "imbed below post." It will fix the problem for you. Have a great week!!
