Ruffle back pack/purse

I saw this tutorial and fell in love!  this is my summer purse:

I HIGHLY recommend making the straps wider (these were a pain to turn)  and if you want it as a backpack for yourself, I recommend making them longer as well (this size is for a child).  I think it would be an awesome diaper bag.  It is quite large, I didn't realize how large it would be from the pictures.

Happy Crafting!


  1. That is pretty cute. I think yours looks better than the tutorial :) What did you do differently?

  2. Well, I used a fabric with a pattern for the lining (I think that she just used white) and then instead of fabric for my pull string, I used an entire roll of ribbon (I think it was 3yds). I put the two ends together and sewed it up so that it had a print on each side. That is all. I am very in love with the color though!
