Ruffled Pillowcase Tote Tutorial with Guest - Alexis from "Lex"

inspiring tutorials + stylish clothing + oodles of talent = lex.

alexis, from the blog "lex" (formerly "my mama made it") and the etsy shop of the same name, is one of my favorite bloggers that i have had the pleasure of getting to know since i started luvinthemommyhood. i remember when i got a sweet email from her one day that led me to quickly pop over and check out her blog and i just knew that this lady was going somewhere - wow! she had literally just started blogging but i couldn't help featuring her on my blog, her stuff was just that good. the rest is history.


alexis quickly went from superstar tutorials, posting more tutes than i have ever seen one woman with 2 kids and a hubs do, to designing and selling her own clothes. i'm so proud and happy for her. her line "lex" is now in stores and in a few weeks she will be doing her very first fashion show!!!! go alexis! needless to say i am super excited she's here sharing us a tute with one of her fave things - ruffles! this girl loves a pretty ruffle!

I'm one of those mom's who feels like I can never have enough bags. I need them for the beach, swimming lessons, overnights, groceries, diaper bags, etc... I saw a really cute ruffled bag on someone and came up with this easy, cute, functional and 'green' bag!

You can throw in anything and you then throw the whole thing in the wash! Here's how!

And you're done!
