Project Description

What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the fact that I pushed past the fear and did it. I let the needle down and started stitching. Once I committed I had to keep going, ignoring the mistakes, because I was using polyester invisible thread and there was no starting over, no squinting the eyes trying to rip out invisible thread. I didn't know what to do about the puckering, but I kept going.

What you will need

  • Panel fabric
  • sewing machine
  • and thread
