This was my first attempt at Japanese folded patchwork. I loved it. The pattern used diamonds of wadding as the base and this was enclosed with a hemmed circle of fabric. Running stitches in embroidery thread secured everything in place. The completed diamonds were slipped stitched together to form the bag
The top 6 points were sewn over and this formed the channel for the cord.
I encased the cord with the same fabric as the bag and to finish off my very dear friend A, showed me how to make these acorns. Easy and really neat on the end of cord.
