http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag1.jpgstep1: cut a piece of lining fabric about twice the size of your finished bag (you'll be folding it in half)
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag2.jpgstep2: cut a piece of ribbon slightly longer than the fabric.
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag3.jpgstep3: cut enough pieces of ribbon to cover the fabric. These will be your "warp" ribbons.
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag4.jpgstep4: sew ribbons to the right side of the fabric right side up, so that they hang way off the end.  (So when you're sewing, the right sides of both ribbons and fabric are facing up and the ribbons are on top). Then flip it over and lightly mist the wrong side of the fabric with spray adhesive. (the adhesive is optional but it makes the whole thing much easier)
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag5.jpgstep5: cut enough pieces of ribbon to cover the fabric in the opposite direction (weft).
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag6.jpgstep6: fold over your "warp" ribbons, and weave in your "weft" ribbons
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag7.jpgstep7: weave until the fabric is all covered
http://psycserv.mcmaster.ca/~domingm/craft_pics/rbag8.jpgstep8: sew it all up, and you've got a bag!

Ok for more explicit step 8 instructions:
first I folded over the ends of the ribbons and ironed them like that.  Then I sewed velcro to the lining sides of the two short ends.  Then I folded the whole piece ribbon sides together so that the velcro edges were together (but the velcro was on the outside.  Then I sewed up the sides,  trimmed and singed the ends of the ribbons, and flipped it right side out.

maybe some little tassles of excess ribbon hanging down would be cute too.

We strode down the open corridors together in our solitary fancy tasting artichokes, possessing every frozen delicacy, and never passing the cashier.

Thanks guys!  You could really easily add a strap, too - just another loop of ribbon before you sew up the sides.
