What materials did you use? I used cotton fabric except for one silky-type material from a skirt I had bought at a resale shop. The embroidery was done with #8 perle cotton, floss, and some metallic threads. All the materials including the old buttons and beads were from my stash, which made it fun...creating something from "nothing!"

I love your border. What material is it and is the outside trim couched?
