I love the Asian influence on our culture. We have hosted exchange students from several Asian countries and they have always brought my daughter some beautiful cheongsam dresses. I saved them over the years and hoped to come up with a good idea to keep them but still be able to use them. This bag pattern is a tribute to the many young ladies that influenced our home over them years. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use your sewing machine. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 8.5" x 11" x 1"
