Re: Fitted Sew-A-Long

I wash my knits and velours on hot once before sewing with them.

With cotton, hemp or bamboo fleece you should wash them several times before using them to reduce shrinking.

So, this is my first fitted i've made with my serger, also my first one that is side snapping, first pocket, first time using snaps, and first self made pattern It turned out ok, my elastic really sucks but it still works just fine. My guy decided to poo in it about 2 minutes after i put it on him and it held everything in just fine! yay!!! I am stuffing it with a hemp stuffins.

Re: Fitted Sew-A-Long

I finished a few, but they are the same print, so I only photographed 2.

Re: Fitted Sew-A-Long

great job christie and peanut!

I'm done with my newbie stash (should be since I'm 39w4d) but hope to get back to sewing some size small after LO gets here.....maybe after a month or so.

I'm still checking in here for ideas and all though! I may even come back and post some pics of my fitteds on a newbie.

Can't wait to see some newbie fluff pics!! I'm still hoping for my OBF to get here so I can get to doing a few rounds of prewashing and then SEWING! For now I'm working on nursery decor items and finishing up UFOs for my 4 year old
