What are you most proud of? I love the hand painted throw pillows; the design on them reminds me of Casablanca, but in a color version. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would recommend that the fabrics used for the place mats are of medium weight. In terms of the hand painted pillows, ensure that you follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer of your fabric paint. Lastly, have fun with your project whether it is a throw pillow or anything else you are making.
