Easy to use. Simply show the bag inside and out. Unzip the bottom of the bag and let the spectator see completely through the bag. Now, place some small silk handkerchiefs into the bag and cause them to change color or turn into an American Flag, a large multi-colored silk or whatever you wish!
This bag can be used to produce, vanish, and exchange other small objects as well, like ropes, bills, sponge balls, etc. Can also be used to force slips of paper, playing cards, etc.
