Description

I drafted this pattern myself, using some bag handles I had picked up from a $3 shop as the starting point. The rickrack was given to me by my aunty who recently passed away – and I thought this was a beautiful way of using it (instead of having it sit in a box in my room). I also thought the different sizes of rickrack was so unusual, I really wanted to use them all together.

Material Notes

Second-hand peach material (unknown type), with white linen lining.
