{Victorian Petticoat Flounce Bag}






I’m sharing something that I created using a Antique Victorian Dress Petticoat Flounce…a little shabby…a little old…and a pinch of romance thrown in for good measure. I’ve had the remnant in my stash for a couple months just waiting to be made into something. There are wonderful stains and little tiny tears from wear in it too. I added a lace handle and two of my handmade fabric flowers for some girly girl bling.


I’m also enjoying Miss Millie Mae more and more each day! We were able to go outside and enjoy some sunshine the other day — but she seems to love the snow (her older sister cannot stand it.) Millie won’t know what grass is until May with the amount still on the ground! :-)

About Sugar Lump Studios

I am a dabbler. I love to create using all sorts of mediums...pattern papers, stamping, fabric, assemblage, collage, altered art, a never ending smattering of whatever strikes my fancy in whimsical moments. I find creating allows my soul to be fulfilled and love to spend hours in the studio.

    What a creative use of that lovely vintage fabric. It’s soooo pretty. Millie looks quite happy. Our California born dachsy has always loved snow, and SNOWBALLS!!!! She’s never liked getting wet with rain, but snow, no problem. No doubt Millie will love rolling in the grass when it’s finally back.

    Love your photo of you and Millie, glad things have settled down for both of you, its so hard when they first come home, I still remember when we brought Cooper home and that was 5 years ago, boy was it hard.

  15. Oh Nancy what a truly delightful bag you have created from that Victorian dress petticoat and some special vintage laces and what is more truly beautiful is that photo of you sitting in the sunshine with Millie Mae.
