Well, it's all done, and I really love it. Predictably, I want one myself. Ah well, the applique was a lot easier than I thought it would be (I was worried about how to deal with the pointy bits) and I certainly have enough fabric left (ahem). Maybe I'll treat myself.I added a little stamped label to the back. I just cannot get the hang of my rotating stamp thing - this was attempt number eleventy billion and it's still all wonky. Oh well, it goes with the rustic text prints. That's my story and I am sticking to it.
So far, my partner has been pleased with it, so fingers crossed she/he likes it now it's finished. Or not, then I can have it. It's a win-win situation.
