Fan - free download pattern from Amanda Yeh

I had a few moments of  Will I? - Won't I? show this as I marked the work after I had finished.  I caught the parchment with one of my tools and of course the sad thing is that you cannot remove a mark from parchment.
You can hide it by covering it - what we call a butterfly moment - but on here it would look so silly.  I could have made one new blade  - as a friend suggested - but it was all finished and glued. So here it is - warts and all.
The pattern is available from Amanda's site


  1. Beautiful, gorgeous, I will check out Amanda's site later.
    Thank you for the lovely comments you left on my blog, I am improving although Ido have to go through some problems with the mole.

  2. What a beautiful fan, and such a shame that you feel you can't use it. When I see your fantastic works of art I wish that I could do parchment, but then I don't think that I have the paitence.

  3. It is stunning Carol and good to see you have a 'butterfly moment' too.

  4. It's beautiful Carol. And yes I can see the mark but it is barely noticeable. And when you are looking at the fan as a whole it's so stunning that you just don't take in the mark.

  5. Thank you for your kind comments. I am glad my Will I? won over the Won't I.


  6. It is gorgeous, Carol. I don't think I'd have noticed your mishap if you hadn't mentioned it.
    It is stunning even with this tiny blemish :-)

  7. It's beautiful, Carol. Do you have photoshop? If so, you can airbrush the mark out...if not you could send it to me and I'll do it.

  8. I too think it is absolutely gorgeous, Carol !! We have all had our "butterfly moments"...and probably will have many more...but I've been told many times over there is no such thing as a mistake in parchment Quite frankly, I like that theory!!! Well done :))
