What are you most proud of? The motivation this project has given me to sew for myself again.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't get impatient....let it dry, but as it does, keep a close look out for areas that may be weaker and need reinforced with padding until it is dry. If you do use Dylusions BE SURE you ModPodge or use a spray sealant of choice to insure none of the ink ever gets moist and activates onto a sewing project.

Old patterns! A great Idea. Thank you for sharing.

I LOVE THIS!!!!!! Your art reminds me of the '60-70's: psychedelic, man . . . . What fun!
