At my baby shower last year, my wonderful friends gave me a beautiful ruffled bag (that they made!!) full of goodies for me to take to the hospital. I've used it so much since then - as a purse, a beach bag, a diaper bag....basically it's perfect for anything. My lovely sister-in-law saw it when we were in St. Lucia and asked if I could make something like it for her. She wanted several ruffles all across the front in bright colors. Here is what I came up with.
