After Appliqué’s are in place take 9” zipper and pin the Bag into place along the rounded sides, and sew the zipper into place. You should have two sides of the bag still open. Unzip the zipper and turn bag inside out. With a tapestry needle take your ocean spray yarn and sew up the sides of the bag in the manner of your choosing. Turn right side out and you have a great hand bag. I use my bag as a make-up bag.
