Project

Chinese Pirate Jacket

What are you most proud of? All of it. It was my first attempt at free machine embroidery. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I was daunted at first, but was really proud of the finished wffect. I just stayed calm and went for it. This project was made with relatively cheap materials, as it would only fit a growing girl for a short length of time. I would recommend using fine wool for the coat material and experimenting with various threads to do the machine embroidery.

You Can Make This
