I made three sets. 2 from Laminate, and one following the directions in the book. I used the blue canvas as a sort of sampler. I tried out different stitches that I never use on my machine. The laminate ones are completely devoid of decorative stitching. I love the laminate as it is. I would love to see someone invest some time and maybe use the laminate in a more interesting way. you can buy a half yard of echino here at Casa Crafty
