What are you most proud of? I am really happy with the way this turned out --- it is much better than I had expected. I also love the machine embroidery --- I am new to this so it was a bit of an experiment but worked really well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is a little tricky to put together so you really need to follow the tutorial closely and be super careful with the seam allowances. It will go together perfectly if you do everything as in the tutorial. I always advise people to save the pdf pattern file to your computer and only print off the pattern pages --- don't print the tutorial --- it is meant to be viewed on your computer so you can zoom the photos when you need a closer view.
