Once I got the first of these in progress, I had the opportunity for the ultimate in stitcherific joy: running both machines at once!! What a glorious mess was my "studio" area:
|The third flamingo is stitching out at this point. Happy, messy mess!|
I oriented one set to go around the diameter of the pillow, and the other to run along its length. One set I left a bit apart to show a glimpse of the fabric print, but I prefer the look of the all-selvedge version where only the fabric titles and color registration dots are visible. I think it looks like a code.
|Most selvedge projects that I have seen leave a bit of fabric showing between strips.|
|I prefer this look, where the fabric prints are entirely hidden under the selvedge strips.|
