Last summer I was lucky enough to come across a fantastic ribbon from the 70s on E-bay. Since then I have been looking for a project that would do it justice and last week I decided to use it for a bag.
I had no pattern, just a picture in my head of what I wanted so there were a lot of trying and failing before i finally could finish.



Its got 2 zippered inner bag pockets and 2 with no zipper.

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the combination....but I'm kind of picky about that sort of thing so don't worry about my opinion.  Smiley It looks well made though! I haven't really tried to make bags before (the only one I made was terrible) so this looks even awesomer to me! And that ribbon is GORGEOUS. What a great find!

The perfect use for your special ribbon!  I'm sure you'll get lots of compliments on it when you're out shopping (I'd stop you and tell you I love it if I saw you on the street).
