What are you most proud of? This is an original idea, and a twist on regular fabric painting. Actually, my focus is on the finished look - that of an embroidered piece of unique fabric-art.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose a piece of fabric with fairly large spaces to fill in with paint as the smaller spaces demand quite a lot of time and patience, as well as some care to keep the paint from running outside the outlines. Stick with it and complete the project even though you may feel a little overwhelmed half way through! The final effect is well-worth the effort and wait. Have fun :)
