“I was very pleased with all the specific details for this pattern. All the options offered were a definite plus. The result was exactly as imaged. Thank you!”

We've got a bag that is SO fun to carry around and makes you feel SO special...everyone will have to have one! After getting hundreds of comments on a great customer creation we blogged several months ago, we decided to come up with our own take on the feminine ruffle bag.

You can make it with a single gorgeous fabric, or mix and match for an eclectic look. We love embellishing the top band with velvet ribbon or lace. The look works beautifully with vintage jewelry. It comes in three sizes - mini (S), purse (M), and tote (L)! There are three options for edge finishing (overlocked, narrow hemmed, and double thickness ruffles), so don’t worry if you don’t have a serger!

And despite the elegant look, this bag is easy-peasy to put together. Combined with all the new choices of Sis Boom Fabrics, this pattern is going to open up all kinds of possibilities for our handbag makers!

Great pattern and easy to follow directions. I get compliments on it every time I use it, especially from 20-something gals (I'm more like 50-something). I used some pink prints with roses from my stash for my first attempt and will make it again.

This was only my second attempt to make a purse/tote from a pattern. It was a great experience! Very easy to follow directions and I loved all the pictures. I even changed up the strap. My 18yr old daughter LOVES all the ruffles and now wants one made for her laptop before she goes off to college. Fun and Easy Pattern!
