What is This?

My mom had this on her counter, and we've had a devil of a time trying to figure out what it is.  I think it's one of those quickie projects you make from ribbon and fat quarters.

Anybody have any suggestions?


  1. Wow, I had to take a moment to really ponder this one. Until I saw that the carry handle opened flat into the inside of the case, I thought it was a tool carrier. I think that with some strategically placed elastic, it could still be that -- for knitting needles, sewing supplies, cross stitch embroidery threads, etc. etc. So do you know what its intended use is, and you're testing us? ;)

  2. Hi Jen, I think it is a napkin box with handle. Just knot the ribbons other way to get the form of a box. Somethin like this:
    but with ribbons and a handle.
    My best wishes for you and your family in this new year 2011. Nikë

  3. It looks like a bread carrier. When you make homemade bread and want to take some where you put it in this

  4. Antoinette -- LOL! I honestly have no idea what it is. But we did use it to carry licorice in.
    Nike: I tried tying it into a box and I think you've got it! It worked, with a little handle!
    Charlotte: It's actually only about the size of a checkbook, so I don't think bread would fit. Even as a napkin holder, it would only hold the small beverage napkins.

    Thank you all for your suggestions! I was dying of curiousity!


That'll be two cents for your opinion please. : )
