What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you're using a soft yarn like Berroco Blacktone Tweed, sewing a good sturdy lining is essential. Make your own template by tracing the outline of your blocked/crocheted pieces onto paper, then add 1/4" to 1/2" seam allowance on all sides.
