Canvas Bag with 3GJ distressed lace ribbon

Today is my 3 Girl JAM dt post and I want to share with you a project that I made for one of my daughter's friends birthday present.  We used a plain canvas bag which I prewashed ( it shrunk a lot and that is why it is still wrinkled in the picture).  I used my Silhouette Studio software to design the name and dancer and then printed that out on Avery Ink Jet T-shirt Transfer paper.  My favorite part of this project though is the gorgeous flower I created using some 3 Girl JAM distressed lace and a 3 Girl JAM vintage button for the center.

To create the lace flower, I cut a circle out of some felt I had on hand.  I used hot glue and starting on the outside of the circle and working inward I glued a small bit of lace to the felt and then folded it back on itself and glued some more and so on. . . similar to "pleating".  When I got to the end I glued the button in place to hide the empty space that was left.  I put a safety pin on the back of the flower to attach it to the bag so that the recipient could use it for other purposes if they wanted to.
