For best results, please read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.
1. Cut a 10"x15" piece of black wool. Fold the bottom up 5"; this area will serve as the pouch of the bag.
2. Stabilizing Form: Measure the folded area of bag and cut a rectangle from the wool about 1/2" smaller than this
area. Cut a piece of chipboard 1/2" shorter and glue to the wool with Fabric Fusion, leaving the 1/2" extra wool
above the top edge of chipboard. Unfold the pouch area of bag and glue the stabilizing unit, centered, to the inside
back area of bag with the chipboard against the bag so its sandwiched between wool. Make sure the edges of this
stabilizing form do not extend to the sides or it will interfere with the stitching later; it should also be lower than
the area where the top flap will fold down. Let dry.
3. Fold the bottom piece back up and over the stabilizing unit and, using the embroidery floss, stitch each side with a
blanket or buttonhole stitch. A running stitch or whipstitch would also work if desired.
4. Fold the top down to create flap. Measure 2" in from right side of flap and starting at that point on the bottom
edge, cut fabric in an angle toward top edge of right side, leaving about an inch of fabric at top. Repeat, starting at
point and cutting toward left side.
5. Cut out the pattern pieces and pin to the black wool. Cut pieces out.
6. Squeeze Fashion Glitter Bond onto foil. Use double-sided tape or a circle of tape to place onto backs of cherries
and press down onto a piece of scrap paper to hold the cherries in place. Tap sponge into the Fashion Glitter
Bond and tap a medium coat onto cherries. Immediately sprinkle Red Jewel Fashion Glitter onto cherries, place
a piece of scrap paper over the top and press with fingertips to push the glitter into the glue. Let sit until dry. Tap
off excess glitter onto scrap paper and return to container for reuse.

7. Cut small irregular shapes from the tan wool to imitate leopard spots. Use Fabric Fusion to glue the spots to the
front and back of bag, but not the flap.
8. Using the wax crayon to pick up crystals, position Lime Green Iron-On Crystals on the stems and leaves. Use
the Cordless Heat-Setting Tool to adhere crystals according to package instructions. Note: Pressure is not needed
when attaching the crystals as long as the tip is touching the glass.
9. Glue the cherries and stems in place on bag with the bottom edge of the stems under the cherry and the top end
of stems extending under the flap. Glue the leaves to the flap so that they appear to extend from the stems when
the flap is down. Let dry.

10. Attach black crystals around the edge of the flap in a solid line and then place randomly on the remaining area of flap.
