What are you most proud of? Hooping. Amanda said it would be challenging, and it was but that helped me to persevere as I rehooped (and rehooped) and followed my crosshairs. Also the first time I used the grids that came with the hoops and her instructions were very helpful. This was a bag I already had. The opening wasn't very big so I had to switch to a smaller hoop and use one of the smaller designs. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You can do it! Be patient. Very worth the time to get the hoop placed correctly. There is great information with tips and tricks in the lessons, and I found it very helpful for my first bag.
