So, at the same time you were weaving your halloween purse, I was busy experimenting with using the weave in a wallet with ... halloween ribbon from WalMart! 

OMG...I love the black and white ribbon...I didn't think of using that for Halloween...I'm making another ribbon bag for my sister and I"m gonna use the black and white for that one...thanks once again for the inspiration...

I was browing the internet actually looking for a ribbon pillow pattern or instructions and found this great little purse.  Though not new to crafts, I make beaded dog collars, I am new to sewing.  I have a machine but have never used it.  How much sewing is really involved in making this purse and can a sewing newbie make it work?
thanks!

I love the wallet.  I am looking around for a good pattern (I have tried the one you have used several times and it has never worked out for me I seem to be cursed)

did you just keep adding strips of ribbon until you got it to the size that was required (say 9 ")?

Yeah - I pulled out the tried and true pattern for my wallet and used it as a guide for how long to cut my ribbon and how much I was going to need to weave.  Remember that it is crutial that you give yourself room to weave and sew - don't cut your ribbon to the exact size of the pattern... make it a few inches longer!

I made one of the ribbon purses for a swap a week or so ago. I made it in blues (3 shades of blue, 1 white, and 4 pieces of pink ribbon), but I used 5/8" ribbon instead of 3/8" ribbon, and only needed a spool of each (bought beige, too, but didn't use it when I found I had two yards of pink that tied in nicely with the lining).  My only visible problem was that one side looks good across the top, but the other side is crooked, even though I spent about 20 minutes straightening out all the ribbons before I ironed (it took more like an hour or two (with interruptions and people bumping the cardboard to get them in about the right position to begin with).  My not visible problem (I hope, anyway) was that my machine kept jamming up sewing the last seam. It took the layers individually just fine, but when I tried sewing everything together at the top...   I ended up handsewing the top edge (and taking one of the lining side seams apart to turn it).   

I just hope she likes it.  Undecided
