Measure a length of 8cms using scale and compass.

Fold the yellow velvet cloth and draw a circle of 8cms radius using compass. Similarly draw two circles of 8cms radius on the arkandy cloth.

Cut a strip 5cms long and 5cms wide from the velvet cloth.

Now fold the other end of the strip twice and interlock it using thread and needle.

Then reverse the bag, so that the velvet  part goes inside.

Step Four

Take the triangular gota lace and attach it to the arkandy circle, starting from the edge and stitching it in a spiral till the centre of the circle.

Similarly cover the other circle with the triangular gota lace in the same way.

Step Five

Make pom-poms from the yellow and the purple wool.

To make the Pom-Poms wrap the wool over a fork some 50 times. Then tie a double knot in the middle of the wrap with another piece of woollen thread.

Make 5 purple Pom-Poms  and 6 yellow Pom- Poms.

Attach these Pom-Poms to the gota covered arkandy circles by stitching them on the edges of the circle (as shown in Pic).

Step Six
Paste plain gota lace on a smaller velvet strip using fabric glue.
Fold the strip and cut it into two equal halves.

Step Seven 
Paste four bangles one over the other using Fevicol.
Make two such bangle sets.

Step Eight
Cover the bangles with gota lace by wrapping and pasting the gota over the bangles using fabric glue.
