What do you think of the new scalloped edge with frill detail?
This pretty one is going to be a silent auction item for a benefit night that a friend of mine is helping organise.
Adding a frill is an easy way to make your bag nice and lady like.
Measure the length of where you want to put the frill on your bag and then cut your fabric double that length. A good width for the frill is 4.5cm wide. With right sides facing match the long raw edge. Sew 1cm across both ends and turn out the right way. Iron flat with raw edges matching. With a 1cm seam sew along the long raw edge with tension on about 3 and length on about 3.5, leaving 10cm of cotton tail on each end. Pulling the bobbin cotton (bottom cotton) gather your frill until it is the right length. Play with it until it's even and looks nice. Match raw edge of frill to raw edge of your bag and sew on with a 1 cm seam. Done.
