Ruffles for me / Volanger




Ruffles, oh no, not for me. I am not in ruffles at all.

 But it is very hard to resist madame Samm´s challenges, and after thinking one hour or two, LOL, I jumped right in the adventure with ruffles. Several years ago I have made a lime green  purse with ruffles, which I have used a lot when it was new. I have bought the pattern, when I was at a quilt retreat in Lousiana 2006  and found the pattern right away.
The purse/bag is named The Trixie bag and it is still on the market. You will find it here.


Först av allt vill jag säga, att jag är verkligen inte så förtjust i volanger, men när Madame Samm kommer med sina utmaningar har jag väldigt svårt att låta bli att tänja på kreativiteten.
Så efter några dagars funderingar, kom jag på att jag för några år sedan sydde en väldigt trevlig volangväska och en sådan skulle passa väldigt väl in i utmaningen. Beskrivningen finns fortfarande till försäljning här.

I wanted to make the purse more firm and with other kind of handles and also to put in a zipper closure. I have used purple linen for the body of the purse  and pink linen for the lining. And as ruffles are very hungry for fabric a lot of different Kaffe Fasset fabric for the ruffles.

Väskan har jag sytt av lila linne med cerise linnefoder och även satt i ett blixtlås för att stänga den.
Det går åt mycket tyg till volangerna, så det tog ett litet hack i mitt Kaffe Fasset förråd.


Don´t you think it is sew cute out there in the spring. And besides lime green, purple is my second favorit color. It looks like a skirt but it is really a purse. And so many ruffles for a person that is not a ruffles lady. LOL

Don´t you think that rose is magnefique? 
The zipper closure


The purse was very fun to make and could be a real conversations piece.

Jag tog lite utomhusbilder och visst märks det att våren är på väg. Väskan är väldigt mycket volanger, men jättesöt och verkligen ovanlig i sin design. Den var dessutom mycket rolig att sy.

Warm thanks to  cheering lady Amy at Sew Incredibly Crazy and lovely Madame Samm  for this fun blog hop and I will follow the ruffles  each day with excitement and will be delighted of all the creativity.

Glöm nu inte att kolla in de andra damernas volanger, där finns säkert mycket inspirerande att se.

Now hop over to the other participating ladies of the day and enjoy their ruffles.

Hill Valley Quilter (that´s me)

Have a great day blog hopping and all the rest of the days with ruffles.

  14. That is a beautiful bag. Kaffe Fassett makes great ruffles. I think you are really a ruffle person in disguise.

    SvaraRadera
  15. What a lovely bag. Does it have lots of weight due to the use of so much fabric used to make the ruffles? I love bags with a good weight to them. Love the solid linen fabric you used! And your rose is magnifique, no doubt there! Beautiful project!

    SvaraRadera
  16. Love the colors, love the bag.. beautiful!!

    SvaraRadera
  17. Hi, Brit-Inger. What a fabulous, wonderful use of those KF fabrics! A riot of colour, for sure. I have a stack of those bold prints and now you've given me an idea of how to use them rather than in a quilt (I have too many of those!). Thanks for sharing today. I'm really jealous that you are having Spring already in Sweden. We just had a big snow storm this week. We all are yearning for Spring here in Washington, DC!

    SvaraRadera

    SvaraRadera
  22. oh my word, for someone who does not like ruffles, you poured so much sweetness in this bag to make you simply a ruffled bag maker and have us all smiling in ruffled delight….

    SvaraRadera
  23. I am "ruffley", either. I like the rose and the recessed zipper on your new purse. It really is a cute bag!

    SvaraRadera
  24. Nice and bright! Great for spring!

  60. Britt! That is a BEAUTIFUL bag!! You are far braver than I as I was scared off by the ruffles ... I know, I know ... a challenge, but still ... you did a marvelous job and love the colors! Thank you so much for sharing and GREAT JOB! :)

    SvaraRadera
  61. It is definitely magnefique! :)

    SvaraRadera
  62. I absolutely love your bag. For a non-ruffly person like you (and me), it seems the solution is ruffle overkill. When there are so many ruffles, you don't focus on the ruffles, but on the gorgeous fabrics and the overall texture. I would definately use a bag like this, but I would never have pictured something with ruffles for me!

    SvaraRadera
  63. Just amazing! This is the best bag I have ever seen. The fabric, the colors, layers if ruffles and the fabric flower tops it off. I bet it is prettier than the one made by the pattern maker. Pretty, pretty, pretty.

    SvaraRadera
  64. Beautiful bag..love the colors and fabrics!!! Thanks for sharing :)

    SvaraRadera
  65. Cute, cute. I love those ruffles, the colors, and the ruffley flower. Adding the zipper closure was a super idea.

    SvaraRadera
  66. Your bag is sure to be an eye-catcher when you use it! I like the flower too.

    SvaraRadera
  67. Britt...it is darling. I didn't think I was a ruffles girl but I'm luving ruffles more and more. Great job...thanks for sharing!! Happy stitching, Pauline

  71. Hello Britt Inger, I absolutely adore your ruffled bag and it is in purples my favourite colour. You did a beautiful job making it and although ruffles are not something I usually choose I would definitely choose that bag. Blessings Sandra

  76. I love the fabric and the ruffles on your bag, reminds me of spring. crystalbluern at onlineok dot com

    SvaraRadera
  77. You knew from making the first one what you might change and that is a help! Make it your own, right? I'm not a ruffles person either but when you make something in a color you love then I bet it will grow on you and you will be getting plenty of compliments as it is YOUR creation. Well done, Britt Inger.

    SvaraRadera
  78. WoW!! LOVE the colors of your purse!

    SvaraRadera
  79. Wonderful bright colours, and a great finish on your bag:)

    SvaraRadera
  81. Wonderful bag! Purple is my favorite color and this is fabulous. The Kaffe prints will be a great conversation piece. Thank you for sharing in the fun.

    SvaraRadera
  82. The pattern you chose for the bag is perfect. I like that you altered it to suit your needs (wants) after having made one from the pattern. The rose is just the icing on the cake.

    A friend of mine made a purse for her mother for Mother's Day. Her mother gave it back and asked her daughter to put some sort of flap (closure) over the top of it. I was astonished that someone would give a gift back and ask for a modification!!!

    Thanks for participating. The bag reminds of spring and all the flowers beginning to bloom.

  83. Hi!!! It is beautiful and I do love the fabric rose!!!!
