What are you most proud of? Actually making it!! I know others have done it regularly, but actually plowing through and doing it myself, not making excuses or procrastinating or putting it off . . . it felt great. I felt beautiful having it in my hair. What advice would you give someone starting this project? So it! Even if it looks slightly deformed the first time, no one will know (unless you tell them!), it could be a wrist corsage or attached to a bag or headband or whatever. The pride in making something that looks so nice and (to me at least) professional looking far outweighs the flaws. And have fun, you're making something beautiful to make yourself look beautiful, nothing wrong with that!
