    I'd like to make a Grandmother's Fan like one I saw many years ago. I could draft it, but would like to just find a pattern.
    The fan blades are separated by what looks like a wooden slat, and the handle is the same fabric. Picture a real fan and you will remember that the folds were separated with a wood that looked like bamboo. Anyone have this pattern?

    Sounds oriental to me. Do a search for oriental fan patterns. Might find one.

    You may have to copy & paste this into your web browser. It doesn't look like it wants to be a hyperlink. lol

    This is a really cool site, but not just the fan I was looking for. It is pretty though. Thanks for the hint.
