|Here are some details about my project:|
|Style||Traditional, Classic, Romantic|
What materials did you use? 100% Cotton pink & rose fabric, 50 wt lavender cotton thread, Pellon Bamboo/Rayon batting.
What are you most proud of? My stitches may not be small but they are even - both front and back. I was able to add a row of echo stitches to the feathers. I'm happy with my first effort.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Consider using a sheer fabric to practice the movements. Wish I'd done this before jumping in but I was too enthused to wait. On my 2nd piece I'm using a contrasting thread to baste. Try different thimbles and needles to see what works for you. If using a water soluble marker use a light hand - don't drag - lift the tip off the fabric at the end of lines to avoid making "spots" as you draw.. If you must correct a marking draw a very light line. Don't repeatedly go over the same marking. Dark marks can be harder to remove. A light spray of water works best to remove water soluble markings. Repeat if necessary. Do not press until marks are removed - it will set the markings.
