What are you most proud of? My sewing by hand has improved this month. Got through this block without any injuries and without sewing it to what I was wearing. (unlike the first block I made this month) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Envision what you want it to look like before you begin. Thinking of the idea and how I wanted it to look probably took me more time than to actually make it. Once I was done, it was pretty much exactly what I had envisioned before I began.
