white ruffled bags and iphone case

I have been surrounded by white ruffles (and children) for the last three weeks,
which is why I haven’t been blogging much.
My usual blogging time has been spent in front of a Singer,
whipping up a bunch of these…
I just finished and shipped off a big box of totes, handbags, and iphone cases to the
the lovely farmgirls at The Urban Farmhouse Market in Louisville, KY…
…so, if you’re in the Louisville area and want one a white ruffled tote or case,
you know where to find them!
{Thank you, Kristen and Lisa.}
I shared the larger totes here.
Kristen asked for a mini version of the larger tote for little girls
but I think these make darling handbags too.
The clasps are for a key chain but they temporarily hold my tags.
That’s what I’ve been up to over here!
I’ll be making a few hundred custom clay tags this weekend
and then we can f.i.n.a.l.l.y. make progress on the zinc counter tops.
I’ve had the zinc sheets laying flat on my bed for a week
to remove the coil (from being in the box) before installation.
It’s a little sad that the only 4×10 foot section of kid-free space in my home
is on our bed in a locked bedroom.
Sheet metal edges are rather sharp so I’m not taking any chances by
laying it out in a more common area.
The husband and I have been sleeping on our family room sleeper sofa.
(Oh, the things we do for DIY.)
I have yet to meet a comfortable mattress on one of those things and
I’m hoping the achy back will prove to be a little motivating next weekend.
Happy Thursday.
Don’t forget to drop your laundry off tonight!


  1. Beautiful, Jami! Let us know if you put those gadget cases in your Etsy. I just got a new phone, but I need a new case now. This would suit me just fine!

    Super pretty! You’re always so busy making and doing things :).

  6. Jami they turned out beautiful!! And I’m guessing the serger got a good workout as well, please tell me it was worth the little bit of extra $. I’m especially loving that iphone case and all the attention to detail is truly exquisite, you deserve to have them with Urban Farmhouse. Curious about your business cards – do you have them printed or diy with a punch? I’m in the market. See you tonight.

    Hi Jami,
    I’m having my morning cup of tea while I read your beautiful blog (and taking a break from the housework).
    I feel like I should be doing something after seeing everything you have gotten done……You have created some simply beautiful pieces……I wish I could sew like that……
    I look forward to seeing the zinc counter tops ;o)

    Will you be offering the ruffled totes in your Etsy shop?
    I’m hoping you do! Sooo cute!

  20. Hi Charlotte,
    I hope you see this because there is no email attached to your comment. Thank you for your sweet note. Yes, I’ll be adding them to my Etsy shop next month. I actually made three bags for my shop but they were snapped up when I posted them on facebook a couple of weeks ago. I’ll share on my blog when they are in my shop. Thank you! Jami

    I would love to purchase one of your iphone cases! This is the first one I have wanted to own. Is there anyway?

  25. Wow-You are a gifted sewer of ruffles! I love the all white and you have used a sturdy fabric that can stand up so nicely for those bucket totes. Thanks for showing off your creations.

  26. Super pretty! You’re always so busy making and doing things :).
