The first step was dying some fabric.
|Three dyed fabrics to consider. I wanted to use the middle one |
but the one on the left turned out to be better.
Sometimes you have to listen to what your fabric is telling you!
I am ready to layer the back, the flannel and the top together and baste it using the tailor's basting stitch.
Then comes the stitching. I am looking forward to that part. I bought some nice threads.
