What materials did you use? I used a mixture of plain and printed soft furnishing fabrics left over from other projects - a great way to use up your stash of remnants. Curtain interlining was used to add bulk. 6mm piping and a magnetic clasp were used to make handles and decorative closure.

What are you most proud of? This was my first project using this technique - and I think it came out just great.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try stitching circles or diamonds. Use woven strips or shapes in the layers. Try fine dressmaking fabrics for a more delicate result. Perhaps stitch on some beads or sequins. Just experiment and have fun.

I love it. I am new to sewing and wondering why the material doesn't fray ?

For best resuts you should make your sewing lines and cuts on the bias.

As GrayHog has mentioned if you stitch on the diaonal you control the fray so it doesn't disintigrate when washed or scrubbed but leaves a lovely chenille edge.

Oops mean't to type stitch on the 'diagonal' . Concentric circles work well too.
