Here is another pattern I had previously posted to Craftster & I also posted it to Ravelry, but I can’t find it there. I think that’s why I never got into Ravelry so much.    I had trouble finding stuff, especially projects I had uploaded.  Could have been user-error though:)

Little Ruffled Girly-Girl Purse, flap closed

Little Ruffled Girly-Girl Purse

Supplies: 1sk worsted MC (for body of purse), 1sk worsted AC (for ruffle), 1 button about 5/8” (or the size to fit between your stitch), H hook

Joining & Ruffle
Line up front & back at the bottoms.
Starting at the top right corner of the front where the sides meet, begin SC around joining both sides using AC.
When you get to the top of the left front side, continue SC around the top of the back.  This will be the flap.
When you get back to where you start Skiing, join & Chain 1.
2SC in each st around to the flap, then 1 SC in each stitch around the flap.  Join & Ch 2.
3HD in each st around to the flap, then 2HD around to the start & join.
The changes on the flap make it less ruffled.

Button
Decide where on the Front you want your button & sew it on (or however your particular button attaches).  It will be fastened through the space between the stitches on your flap.
