Here are some details about my project:
Category Quilting
Type Home Decor
Style Funky, Whimsical
Ms. Elaineous on

What materials did you use? Scraps of fabric, yarn, fabric selvages, zipper, and fringe

Ms. Elaineous on

What are you most proud of? Just doing it. I kept saving and saving (and collecting selvages from other people). One day I just decided to go for it. I entered it a Sew Mama Sew contest. I think that contest pushed me to get it done, too.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't over think - just cut the words out and start putting them on the fabric. I love the couching foot, so try that, too.

I love your spunk, this is a artsy pillow. Great work.
