I'm no fOoL!

First off, HaPpY foOls daY! 
Hope you're all enjoying your day of tricks, and remembering to watch your back :)

I pity da foOl today.
Alright, I haven't really got any new tricks up my sleeve to tell you about, so I had to go and borrow some. 
Have you seen the Pleated Poppy's handbag redo yet? 

Now, I'm no foOl. 
I know a good idea when I see one, and I know when it is absolutely necessary to steal these good ideas.
So that's exactly what I did.
I picked myself up a bag at ON.

Went through my scraps.

Made me a ruffle.

And a few flowers.

And ended up with this.  (I made all my flowers pins so they are interchangeable/mix and match...fiCkLe)

Even blinged up the coin purse a bit.

This one is fOoL pRoOf.  Really, easy.  And fun.  And springy.  I'm lovin' it.
For much better instruction, go here...she'll tell ya exactly how to make yours.  Don't be a fooL,!

That is adorable! Do you think they would hold up on shirts? Send me an e-mail if you are interested in making some spring shirts. I think these flowers with rik-rak stems would be really cute!

Did you attach the ruffle with a glue gun like Lindsey did? SUPER cute!
