I've been having a blast making ruffle totes, they are so much cuter then just canvas! And the best part is you can make them with just a few fat quarters or even scraps of material. There is no pattern because I just started playing and came up with the final project on my own. I've been using mine as a camera bag and went to a party last weekend and 2 of my aunts wanted one made so now I'm busy this week trying to get them done. Really put a hampering on my playing with paper this week, but I love sewing just as much.
