What are you most proud of? I'm proud of the embroidery on the bottom strip (a butterfly and her name). I'm also proud that I completed this from start to finish over the course of a long weekend. No procrastinating! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be sure to wash the cotton first. Two of my fabrics shrunk a lot. Also, avoid patterns with strong linear designs as they won't line up right if the fabric shrinks or goes off the grain after washing.
