So I tried to make a tie which did not go well at all. I think I used too difficult of a fabric to work with on my first attempt. Then I made 1 flower from a pattern that comes with a ton of different styles. It's not exactly semetrical but I like to think of it as eccentric and if I keep practicing they'll be less eccentric. It was also my first attempt at beading.
Then I made a purse from a pattern I have. I had made the version with fabric ties for handles before anthis time used bamboo handles. I was so happy with how it turned out, that I made another.
