Shell patterned rollup UPDATE
Lara mailed me her piece called Shell patterned roll up, Loretta Spears, that she had stitched. The instructions said to back the pieceand I have lots of gold! Lara says this is a free pattern on the Rainbow Gallery website called Shell Patterned Roll up,
So I stitched a piece of gold lame all around the outside of the piece. Then I pinned it together at the top
I used a single strand of thread to sew the seam as this is very fragile and lacy.
Last, I covered two bone rings with more of the gold lame as I did not have enough of the fabric. I put
a loop of gold through one end for the hanger and attached a small tassel through the bottom one and
glued those in place. I hope you like it Lara!
