I have to admit, I really love my new purse  Grin.  It was actually pretty easy to make. Its just a basic bag with the ribbon and bow sewn onto it.  It only took me about 3 hours (not including the time it took to make the bow) and $5 to make.  Im a freak when it comes to all things green so when I saw the ribbon at walmart I just knew I had to have it.  I actually wanted pink polka dotted ribbon when I started to plan out the bag but I couldnt find any that I liked. But the green worked so all in all Im happy.  If anyone feels like trying to make something like this and needs help just ask Smiley

That is simply beautiful! I'm also wondering about the bow. It must've taken a LONG time.

thanks  Grin...well, I tried to make the bow with some method I found in a crafting book but it didnt really turn out like I wanted...then I remembered that I had a bow maker thing my mom bought ages stashed under my bed...I had never used it before but after awhile I finally got the hang of it and ended up with the bow...I figured that if the whole bow maker thing failed I could look online for a way to make one or just go out and buy a ready made bow...I guess I just got lucky that the bow maker actually worked...I did have to hand stitch the bow on though so that it would stay exactly where I wanted it
