Years ago my sister and I went to a large craft show in Dublin. As is always the way, we were inspired and came back with this little bag pattern and some silky ribbon. It looked quite easy, but the slippery ribbon made it quite challenging.
Roll on at least a decade and I find this bag unfinished in the bottom of my wardrobe. I thought I would at least give it a chance by sewing it together. Again, a testing job, as it's difficult to distinguish stitches and the ribbon pulls up large loops as you sew.
Anyway ... it's finished! It needs lining, as it's very springy. But what do you think? I may use the idea of tying yarn to make fills for something else ... although not using ribbon!
