As I pondered how to tackle this, I was gifted a mini iron. Oh, what a difference! I can only work on it in short bursts, but I'm making progress. I keep screwing up the over/under - I had to pull out one side twice before it lined up correctly.
I planned to machine sew this, but I'm not confident I can catch the finished edges properly. Now the plan is to hand stitch. I may start stitching the one side before completing the pinning of the other just to get a better feel for how it will look when it's done.
Along with the mini iron, I received a bag of scrappy metallic thread. Very pretty stuff - not something I usually use. But it's inspiring me. Suddenly I have a new project at the top of my list. Then I really need to start focusing on Christmas stuff. Is it really November already?
