Naughty Notions Challenge - A woven ribbons experiment


Crazy me... like I didn't have enough on my  plate I decided to take on the challenge hosted by Rikka @ Sew La Vie... the Naughty Notions challenges... Could not resist , I HAD to.

So here it is, finished just before the deadline.
I dug up into my ribbon stash because lately it's been out of control.

I wove the selected color and stabilized the resulting"fabric" with medium weight interfacing


Then I dug up in my scraps' bins : cute left-over floral brocade and a piece of leatherette for the lining and outside shell


Added some fun trim left over from a jacket 
And this fab button covered in bead from my stash...






Finished !! 


I already took it out on a fancy dinner date with my hubby last night :)
