Easy Skirt-to-Bag Transformation

I'm not a huge fan of the color yellow, so when I was given a yellow ruffled skirt several years ago, I found I rarely wore it.

I decided that the skirt would look better as a bag and the yellow could be a removable pop of color as an accessory as opposed to the foundation of an outfit as a skirt.
I removed the top portion of the skirt and attached it as a liner and took scraps from my Just a Trim Dress and made a strap.

Now I have a ruffled yellow bag. I posted more steps on my blog at
