What are you most proud of? I am proud that my monograming and applique abilities are getting slightly better. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was such an easy and functional project, I decided to also feature it on my blog (http://itriedthatcrafter.blogspot.com/) for a late November entry. There are a few tips and many pictures on how I put mine together. The original pattern I downloaded from Craftsy is a great help with easy to understand instructions. A great project for a beginner or something fun for the weekend. Happy sewing!!
