sewing pattern for ruffle bag

Giveaway has closed!
i’m so excited to let you all in on a little secret….errr…project i’ve been working on. 
i started a pattern shop called  
The Ruffled Begonia!!! wahoo!
it’s something i’ve been tossing back and forth for awhile. and thanks to my good friend and mentor, Scotti, i opened The Ruffled Begonia about a month ago. i was hoping to get at least 3 patterns done before i told you lovelies about my new shop. but mommy life happened and only two are done. but i am really excited about the 2 patterns that are done!

ruffled breastfeeding apron

being a breastfeeding mom myself, i wanted a cover that was both stylish and functional. so i designed this Ruffled Nursing Cover. it is lined and has plenty of coverage. i have a couple more designs for nursing covers that i plan to create patterns for {whenever i get the time!!} .

bag with ruffles

i {heart} ruffles! and this bag is rufflicious!! this is the perfect little bag to grab on your way out the door. this bag can be made using fat quarters for the ruffles.
