Dwa drobne pytanka, pierwsze- fredzelki z przodu i tylu dodajemy, prawda? i drugie- taki jeden szew nie bedzie jakos zaciagal robotki czy cos?nie wiem nie znam sie dlatego sie pytam ;)

DROPS Design 19.02.2015 kl. 17:52:

Frędzle są z przodu i z tyłu. Szew nie może być zbyt ścisły, wtedy nie ściągnie robótki. Po zakończeniu proszę o komentarz do wzoru. Mam nadzieję, że rezultat będzie jak należy. POWODZENIA!
