Thank you buglake for this tut!!
I am almost done making mine for my wedding, I still need to put the handles and button on and sew the lining in, then I'll post pics. I am also almost finished with the matching wallet.
I did want you to know that I used varying width ribbon and some of it has wired edges. The wired edges made it a little difficult and I had to cover the seams with Bondex because the wire kept catching on the lining or my hand. I really like the effect of the varying width ribbon. I also had a difficult time getting the interfacing to stick to ribbon.
