Ruffled Tote Bag

My sweet friend Abby recently sent me a whole box full of surprises, so I wanted to make her something pretty in return!  The above tote was a lot of fun to "whip up" --- I based it on this one that I found on Pinterest.
 
(The box of surprises from Abby)
Wal-mart sells 3 packs of those tote bags (back in the craft stuff) for $6.  That makes each tote cost only $2....so this gift is not only frugal but fairly easy to "whip up."  I think it took me just over an hour to make this one.  
Be sure to stop back by on Monday when I'll feature another variation using this $2 tote bag.

I absolutely LOVE my new bag and am thrilled to have one of your handmade gifts. I'll always treasure it. I think it would take me more than an hour to "whip it up". Glad you like your goodies. I had fun putting the box together for you. ~ Abby

I love your bags, they are so cute and cheerful. Let's finely get rid of all those damaging plastic bags.
