Hey, I made this bag back in high school to go with a prom dress, thought I'd share:
(Sorry about the large, blurry photos!)

Instructions:
Get ribbon you like and weave it into a cute pattern.
Iron the "cloth" onto fusible interfacing... this will save you a lot of hassle when sewing.
Sew into whatever shape (I can't remember the pattern I used... I might have improvised it).
I added a ribbon loop on one side of the opening an d a button on the other to form a closure. The handles are braided ribbon.

That's gorgeous!

What type of interfacing did you use?  Was it heavyweight?  I'm pretty clueless when it comes to interfacing.

Thats why I made it!
I had this black dress with a bright pink crinoline underneath... so I made the bag to match.

What a neat idea!  
Is it very sturdy?  It looks like it could hold up very well.

The fusible interfacing makes it a whole lot sturdier than a ribbon bag would be otherwise. There's little you could fit in there that would be too heavy for the bag to hold up to. Except possibly lead. But I usually don't carry around large chunks of lead in evening bags.
