I acquired this vintage fabric from one of my elderly neighbors who no longer sews because of her vision and when I first saw it, I knew exactly what it was to become! So here it is -> My Chinese Fortune Take-Out Purse!











The fortune on the inside of the flap says:
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
