Crochet Ribbon Cigarette Case

I have fallen in love with the Lion Brand "Incredible" crochet ribbon. The ribbon I am using is "Autumn Leaves". For the past several months I have been threatening to buy a new cigarette case...never could find one that I liked and since the one I have is literally falling apart it was beginning to be one of those "take what you can get, not what you want" deals. Last night I was working on my CQ square when it occurred to me... this would be beautiful made into almost anything. So I used a single crochet stitch and in minutes this is what I came up with. I will continue for a couple more rows with decreasing at the beginning of each row to make the foldover into a curve, then use a button for the closure. I haven't decided yet whether I will embellish it or not since the glisten of the ribbon is lovely without anything else on it. The lining will be in a matching color (I think...a contrasting color might be ok.. will have to try several and then decide).
