Using the brocade fabric was the hardest part. It was so slippery, I could barely get the interfacing to stick, and I ended up with some singed fabric trying. I used lots of pins! My machine HATED me for the final two line stitches across the ribbon, but it chugged along.
I hoped the recipients liked them. I was very nervous making them and trying not to screw up!
(These are much shinier than the picture shows!)
