MEshelltakeone- What a great package! The shirt and scarf are both amazing! Love the duct tape clutch and the necklace, too (I heart Robot Love)! Such cool stuff!

And, I got another package today from SaccharineSunshine04 with a reconned t-shirt. If I can figure out how to photograph it while wearing it (don't have a big enough mirror), I'll post an action shot. Otherwise, you'll just have to settle for the laid-out-on-the-bed shot Wink

On the face piece, stitch right around the front part.  then cut it out.  You don't sew the back part of the face piece yet.  The SA is for when you attach it to the back part of the head.  On the head back piece you sew around the non SA side, leaving a hole for the neck.  Then cut out, including SA, so that you can slap it together with the front piece.  Clear as dirty water now?  Cheesy

Okay, I get it, now! And silly me! If I had stitched along the seam allowance like I was thining, I would have made a very tiny head Wink

That's what I get for trying to think when I just wake up...

Thanks for your help, ghilie and MonkeyThumb!

You do NOT add a seam allowance along the front of the face.  The "marked" seam allowance is all that is needed, it's not really marked though, which is why I added that in the instructions.  Clear as mud huh?

Are you doing the freezer paper method, like it says in the instructions?

I will be doing the freezer paper method, but I just confused myself again...


as for the SA on the face, the line that's shown is the stitching line on the front, the SA is added to the other side (where the double line is). you don't "add" any SA because (if you're using the freezer paper method) you don't cut out closely around the head shape, you use a much bigger piece of fabric than the head so you have material to work with when you are sewing the detail. you trim it after you sew.

ok, now i feel like i'm clear as mud.

So, let me see if I get this:
-On the arms and legs and ear, I stitch right around the edge of the freezer paper pattern.
-On the face and head, I stitch right around the edge on the unmarked edges of the pattern, and down the line that is indicated on the marked edges of the pattern.

But now, I'm not sure what to do about the body pieces and tail. Do I:
A) Stitch right around the edge for all pieces
B) Draw a 1/4" seam allowance around all of the pieces and then stitch on that
C) Do something else?


My goodness! I've been sewing for almost 30 years and I can't believe I'm stuck on this! Sometimes, I tend to over-think things...

Okay, I just re-read this entire thread and I have a question that I don't think has been asked and answered. I just need a little clarification on the seam allowance to the face. The directions say to add a seam allowance to half of the face. The pattern already has a seam allowance marked on one edge, so am I adding the seam allowance to the side of the face where the nose is? And, do I also add a seam allowance on the large curved edge of the back of the head (the part that has the opening for stuffing)?

Thanks!

I absolutely love this hat! I love the look of cables, but I can't knit to save my life. I recently came across a book called 63 Crochet Cable Stitches, but I haven't had time to play, yet. And, I know I could never create a hat pattern. So, if you do have time to write the pattern out, I'd be more than happy to "test" it for you Wink

I bought a bunch of acrylic paint (it was on sale), but couldn't find the paint on glaze. I do have some spray on, so I'm hoping that will work.

But, I just realized that I forgot the ball. I used to play racquet ball, so I may have a can of them around, but I'm not sure I'll be able to find them...

Thanks! I'm heading out to the store in mere minutes...but my camera battery is about to die and the charger is missing, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to post pics tonight Sad

Hopefully, I'll have time to play a little bit tomorrow!

Just a question, though...I saw that you handled the hot/warm plastic with bare hands. How long did you have to wait until you could do that?
