Mini Bag with Ribbon Handles
So here is the step by step description of how to!:
a rectangle of felted wool, mine is 6" x 13"
about 45 inches of ribbon for handles
about 12-1/2" of ribbon for decoration
optional applique or button to embellish the bag
top-stitch the other ribbon across the place where the raw edges of the handle ribbon meet
"box" the bottom corners of the bag by stitching a short seam perpendicular to the side seam. Don't stitch into the ribbon area,
this one shows that I didn't use a second ribbon, but I just sewed a little applique over the raw ends of the handle ribbon.
(update, another good size is: rectangle, 7-1/2" x 17", ribbon handle, 60")
