Put aside my nervousness...
So a few days ago, I finally say down behind the sewing machine and did some practicing. Then sewed the ribbon to the project. The stitches weren’t all even, but it was good enough.
It will be behind a mat when framed, so it doesn’t really matter. Not only that, the thread I used was white, so you can’t see some of the mistakes. The only thing left to do is the hand stitch the corners. Then put on the Velcro and stretch it onto the scroll frame.
That will have to wait until next week though.
