Good choice does not fade, and hardly wrinkles.

It looks great, and it is wonderful your customer was good with the price!

I am still working on this project. Funny thing is that I have been using two of MissFleecy's "sewing tips" from the other day. When sewing the letters to the table cloth there were several areas where it was much easier to sew backwards than it was to manhandle that entire table cloth through the machine to sew forwards. The other is the magic marker trick. There are a few areas where the white stabilizer is showing on the edge of the letters. I have, on my work table right now, a sharpie that I am coloring the white parts with. :o

Gina, that is too funny! :lol: Just please don't follow my "tip" about how to remove a needle from your finger, should that happen!

Well I already put the requisite blood, sweat and tears into this project so hopefully I won't run a needle through my finger.

Gina, you might want to use a fabric glue stick to hold the letters down while you stitch. It dries clear and washes out. I use it all of the time. It's very similar to the Elmer's School glue sticks except this is for fabric. An Elmer glue stick will work also.
