What are you most proud of? Using recycled and scrap materials to make something practical and one-of-a-kind. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Relax and have fun with it! If you use scrap materials you can just toss it if it doesn't turn out to your liking. I didn't know what I was going to do until I started stitching and it just evolved. I made this in fall/winter and I think I just might make a spring/summer version in lighter colors.
