What are you most proud of? I've only been working on a sewing machine for a few months now (got it as a birthday present in March), and I'm proud of the fact that I made the pattern myself, figured out the dynamics, and made it with no help, other than to research how to do a hidden stitch. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time, for sure. Don't get too frustrated, either. I'm not sure what other advice I could give.
