This pattern hast so many superb ideas for creativity. It was my first bag, necklace (Jewelry) and wow, I made a beautiful Alice band. Thinking now with the world in lockdown and wanting something different to do, this is the perfect pattern as you can let your mind drift in so many directions and get the most amazing results. A wonderful pattern to add to my collection. Thanks so much Margie.
I had the best fun with this pattern. I have used the bag over and over again in other pictures and the fun choosing fabric, beads, positioning all in this small place. My first bag, necklace and never thought I’d ever do an Alice Band. Oh I love it. This is an awesome pattern for us all to sit and make during these hard times of lockdown when we get bored. We can sit on our beds with a tray, or at the table, just anywhere and CREATE! Use your creative imagination as nothing is bad and not nice. A stunning pattern Margs. ♥️
