I was so excited I pin basted the backing as soon as I got it out of the package. What I LOVE about Alabama Chanin is the fact that it's all constructed by hand. Their jersey is made with 100% organic cotton that is also wonderful. It feels soft yet sturdy. I'm going to baste it with thread so it will be a bit more portable.
The book shows a lot of different embellishing techniques including different hand stitches, embroidery stitches ribbon embroidery and beading. In the back of the book, there are the master patterns in 5 sizes; XS to XL.
I can't wait to get started on this awesome hand sewing project!
