More guts than brain! That will definitely be a new series on my blog!

I would love to start a new linking party on this topic because I'd love to see and read about your projects!

Let me tell you, I was sweating more than once! Above all when I had to rip off the fabric and realized what I have been starting on.
I planned to write a tutorial for this but I actually can't tell you exactly how I did it but I just did it!
And here it is:
