New Project

This is the first step of my project. The first photo is the fabric with Texture Magic on the back and I have stitched a grid on the fabric. I used my embroidery machine to stitch the grid and could have completed the task much faster by using a decorative stitch on the machine. But that did include digitizing the grid which I now have. The I thoroughly steamed the texture magic to complete the shinking process. The fabric shirks approximately 30% in all direction. If you make the photos larger, you can see the details much better. I used a metallic teal thread in the bobbin to give the glitz. I am going to make a lovely wallet from this beginning. I hope to get it finished tomorrow.
