Haven’t started this project yet but pattern looks well explained.
The pattern helps you create a lovely fan shaped zipper bag. I decorated the outer area with antique lace which I tea dyed. I created floral motifs to embellish the lace and lined the bag with an Asian print fabric. Inserted a fine zipper closure and added a hand blown glass ornament for a pull. It is to be a birthday gift for my daughter.
Haven’t had a chance to begin this project. Very excited to give it a try.
