Here are some details about my project:

What materials did you use? Cotton with fusible tricot, since I cut the cotton on the bias. I needed the little stretch.

What are you most proud of? This is my first bound button hole and I could not be more proud of myself. The wool fabric is a little thick, so it used the lining fabric to construct button hole. I added a little tricot to fabric at buttonhole before installing. I really enjoyed this process....thanks Steffani!
