What materials did you use? Fabric, Thread, Heat and Bond Lite, paper pieces, needles, hot fix crystals, beads, bead fringe, sewline glue pen

What are you most proud of? Too many to count 3/4 inch hexagons English paper pieced. Then I free hand drew up a tent for my elephant and machine appliqued it all to the hexagons. I hot fixed lots of crystals and did some bead work on the elephant. I also used some crystal fringe which I don't ever plan on using again since it was such a pain the ass. I added the project name, year, and my initials on the back on an appliqued patch that I did on my embroidery machine

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience with the hand piecing of hexagons!!

Lisa, How beautiful it is. That is a tremendous amount of work...and yes, patience is required for the piecing. Fantastic job. I have never seen English paper piecing look like that.....am drooling...Margaret
