Here are some details about my project:
Category Embroidery
CraftingClaire on craftsy.com

What materials did you use? Calico, cotton, silk rayon thread, and poly fill.

What are you most proud of? I think the finished result looks lovely, it's not perfect as the fabric in the hoop moved a little.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? My fabric moved in my hoop, I think that I need to overlap the stabiliser over the side of the hoop more, as it slipped out on one side and it was a little baggy.

Claire, this is just great!!

Claire, Be sure to cut your stabilizer so that you have about an inch or so extra on all sides of the hoop, making sure it's taut in the hoop. This will assure that it stabilizes your project adequately.

Thank you. I only got my machine last month, I have a lot to learn, but I am having fun learning.
