What are you most proud of? I tried a new pattern that made the entire purse in the hoop of my embroidery machine and I didn't get overwhelmed and push it into a corner! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the directions all the way through, then read them again. It wasn't hard but you do things that you don't normally do in embroidery/assembly work, like add fabric to the back of the stabilizer and stitch it on, not seeing what's going on.
