Project

The Irrelephant Pillow

What are you most proud of? Too many to count 3/4 inch hexagons English paper pieced. Then I free hand drew up a tent for my elephant and machine appliqued it all to the hexagons. I hot fixed lots of crystals and did some bead work on the elephant. I also used some crystal fringe which I don't ever plan on using again since it was such a pain the ass. I added the project name, year, and my initials on the back on an appliqued patch that I did on my embroidery machine What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience with the hand piecing of hexagons!!
