Thanks for the photo and the instructions; it looks like a keeper. And I had no idea there was such a thing as a wearable thread-holder, even after crocheting for almost sixty years. Never too old to learn....

It's very pretty. I might make it. I actually do crochet with thread, but I was kinda wondering if the bag could be used for something else. How about for tissues? When going to see sad movies, I could bring my victorian tissue bag. ;-)
