    Love your sewing tip on sewing with organdy. I’m trying the drawer liner tip with batiste. Also
    love the embroidery you used in that tip – the lovely bow design. Is that a Martha Pullen embroidery design? I’d love to try that embroidery design out.

      Thank you. Yes, that is a Martha Pullen design, it is from the 2010 Internet Embroidery Club Christening Gown 2. I don’t know if you can still get that pattern or not.
