I'll start off the thread with my most recent piece. This is a gift I made for hubby:
- Approximately 30,160 Perler beads
- 44 inches by 24.5 inches (111.8 cm X 62.2 cm)
Lastly, a quick question. I bought a Brother sewing machine recently. At first, I was only going to use it to tailor my own clothes but now I'd like to expand my horizons. What I'm looking for right now is a good beginner's guide. I'd like to know more about the many types of fabric, what the different stitches are for, how to take measurements, what fabric to use for any given project and so on. Any assistance would be appreciated!
