What are you most proud of? My first try at hand-sewn buttonholes - I think they came out pretty good (and much better than my sewing machine will do - it's sadly unwilling to do any reverse stitches at all these days). I used this buttonhole stitch: http://www.ushist.com/general-information/hand-stitch_buttonholes.shtml

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The feather&fan pattern uses 12 stitches for each repeat - you could easily size this up by adding another repeat or more, and more rows. Do at least one large swatch in the feather&fan pattern so you know how it is going to turn out - I did 4 in different patterns & needle sizes before I was happy! On mine, the finished waist measurement is 55cm, strap length about 20cm. It fits my average-but-round 1y.o.
