Patriotic shorties

Ok so I tried to duplicate stitch and it is sooo not perfect Each time I try it will get better right?

I am overall happy with how they came out. I am going to wash them and see if I can smooth out the stitches and see if I can cover up the blue underneath a bit better.

Re: Patriotic shorties

Very cute! When you duplicate stitch are you starting from the bottom and working your way up? If you do it the other way, or if you work side to side it will show more of the underneith. Try starting from the bottom and working all the stitches in that one row all the way up, then move onto the next row starting from the bottom and working all the way up again, that should help

Eta: When I say "bottom" I mean, start on the point of a v, and work up around the stitch, then up through the next bottom of the v.

Re: Patriotic shorties

Kimi...thanks so much for the tip. I will definitely try that. Yeah I don't think I was as meticulous with it as I could have been either.

Heather...I can't wait to see action shots on your lil' guy. Hope you all get lots of fun use out of them this spring and summer
