What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it, I don't use patterns because I feel like I am just reproducing someone elses work. I make one of a kind items. The advice I would give is to have fun, enjoy what you are doing. Let your heart and imagenation take you on a flight of fancy. Laugh at your mistakes, laugh as you pull out bead stitches. Be patiient with yourself.
