I started embellishing the fabric early last spring and finally finished it. Last week, I worked on it and made such a mess that I had to cut to salvage it. There was no way I could have ripped my seams out. I liked my appliqué, embroidery, and quilting too much to walk away from the whole mess. I'm satisfied with how it turned out, although I would plan differently next time. My sister thought I should have bound the edges of my embellished fabric and called it a table runner. I also made a computer sleeve from my leftovers, but I don't have a pic of that yet.
Thanks for looking!
