What are you most proud of? All of it. It was my first attempt at free machine embroidery.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was daunted at first, but was really proud of the finished wffect. I just stayed calm and went for it. This project was made with relatively cheap materials, as it would only fit a growing girl for a short length of time. I would recommend using fine wool for the coat material and experimenting with various threads to do the machine embroidery.
