I finally made something with my new ( ish) machine. Pajamas for my 6 year old daughter Becca, who is also my lovely model. I made them from dollar a yard fabric and made the applique from felt. I have found being able to draw some helps alot in making patterns for embroidery and applique.
I dont even want to talk about the seam im the front..the pattern...whose name I have blocked from my memory said to" cut the fold"..NOT cut along the fold. I though it was strange...and I only had just enough fabric.
Oh well..I seamed the front...and back and all was well.

now--call the pattern company, tell them about this mistake, they usually will send you a free pattern of your choice to make amends.

hey, where kids are concerned, sappy is good!  if more kids had sappy parents, there would be fewer troubles in the world.

i have called pattern companies many times and always they were very thankful for getting the info about the patterns.  they don't LIKE putting out patterns with mistakes but with so many new patterns each season there will always be a few that slip thru the cracks.  they've always offered a new pattern of my choice, but if they don't, ASK!  i have never known them to say no.
