Few Ruffles version of the Tiny Tutu Tote

Here is the 3rd version of the Tiny Tutu Tote - Few Ruffles!

It was made with Hobby Lobby's I Love This Cotton Spark cotton yarn and Chrysalis ruffle yarn.

While the outcome looks great, I really do not "love this cotton" for this project.  It is extremely loose and stretches way too much.  If you use this yarn, your tiny tote will have to be lined.

The Chrysalis ruffle yarn worked great.  But instead of using every other hole like the Sashay, use every hole since the holes are bigger.  I love the gold color!

Now to work on the No Ruffles version.  Will post that when done.

Here is the link again to the pattern:

Thank you!
