2nd Project - 18th Century Design

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Along the way I learned to vary the stitch size to match the element. E;g.: the tiny scrolls, circles, and feathers require tiny stitches while the larger elements to not. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't skip around - start in the middle and stitch your way out.

What you will need

  • 100% Cotton fabric
  • Cotton thread
  • rayon/bamboo batting
  • water soluble marking pen.
