|Kwik Sew 3773|
Middle Son likes to be invisible. He chooses dark and very non-flashy, like his grey Ethan shirt. Well, Youngest Son is a little flashier. He wanted some safety orange fleece for his pull-over. I was concerned about my eye sight sewing such a bright color, but knew it would be a quick sew and decided to go for it.
What mom wouldn't want their very active, often wandering nine year-old boy not to wear safety orange? I bought a yard and a half. I was using Kwik Sew 3773 again and it didn't give the yardage for just the top, only for top and pants. I was guessing on the yardage.
|Stitched design. The shiny layer is water soluble stabilizer|
that is placed on top of fabric before basting and stitching.
The rectangle of stitches are the basting stitches and will be
removed. The water soluble stablizer pulls right off.
|The back of the embroidery. The stabilizer has been|
cut away. I'm leaving the short threads because, I
will be covering with an iron-on layer.
One of the best parts of machine embroidery is that the machine runs by itself and it should not be left alone. I often use the time to do a little clean up. I put away the pattern. I cleaned and rethreaded the serger. I loaded the dishwasher. Then I needed to stop the machine to pick up the boys and run some errands. Time sure flies.

has been ironed in place.|
It is now soft, hides stitches and just looks better inside.
This project was the perfect time for me to use my new labels. I wasn't sure about using it, but like I said, Youngest Son is insistent. I ordered my labels from NamesLabelsandTapes.com. I recently became an affiliate for them and wanted to know their product before recommending them.
NamesLabelsandTapes.com, I figured I would give it a try. After all, I am making a lot of clothes with the Ready To Wear Fast with GoodByeValentino.com
I love them. How fun to put my label in the clothes I make! I know. I'm a geek.
