Just a bit of time left for those sewing in my timezone for the first week of the February Stash Game!
Hopefully those of you who are playing are doing better than I am. I managed to finish this, though –
I haven’t washed it since I finished it, so the lettuce edge is going to curl more once it runs through the laundry, but I’ll let my sister do that.
How are you doing? Sewing up a storm? If you’re just stopping in, feel free to join, you can just start wherever you are. :) Here’s a link to more info in the forum.
I’ve been working on the forums lately, and making bad faces at my embroidery machine as I tried to get this applique to stitch out nicely.
This one’s still not perfect, but after multiple stitch-outs, I’m calling it good. I’d also like to get it in the mail to my niece while it might still fit her. :)
So, today’s question – turn under and hem the sleeves and bottom or lettuce edge them?
Good news is that the sweatshirt I made my nephew fit him! Bad news is, he really doesn’t know who Snoopy is! He did like Jack’s Tow Mater shirt, so I made another one of those in his size. It’s all set except for the fusi-knit on the back, but I’m waiting for it to dry after I washed off the water soluble stabilizer from the front. I’m hoping to get it in the mail Monday or Tuesday.
This is Kwik Sew 2912 again, this time in a 3T, which I’m hoping will either fit my nephew or leave him room to grow.
I forgot to mention it before, but this is the neatest fabric. It looks like a sweater knit on the front, but inside it’s the nicest soft fleece.
Colors in the embroidery –
C&C G8 51 (brown)
Mettler poly sheen 5643 (dk green)
Mettler poly sheen 1805 (red)
This has two layers of water soluble on the top and a layer each of solvy sticky and cut away on the bottom.

2. Sulky Yellow
3. C&C D8-543

I made these a few weeks ago and am in the process of making another pair. Kwik Sew 3016, size 6 with the length of size 7 in the bottoms and an additional inch in the sleeves.
The embroidery for the top on the second one just finished.
The design is from Bunnycup Embroidery. It’s stabilized with a layer of Sulky Sticky + on the bottom and two layers of Super Solvy water soluble on top. Pink microfleece – cozy for winter.
