Sundance helped her set the zigzag stitch.
Trouble seemed to like the setting on the iron for the Pellon fusible web.
And here's the result.
We still need to sew the leaves and stems onto the pumpkins and then sew all three jack-o'lanterns together.
What would I insist Momcat do differently?
- Make sure all the stripes go up and down, rather than horizontally. The design element she chose of making only the center jack-o'lantern having vertical stripes displeases me.
- Do a better job on that zigzag stitch! I can see some of the stitching going too far into the base of the fabric rather than the applique. Not acceptable!
- Enlarge the stem slightly. Although we followed the pattern directions, and the pattern is adorable, I think a stem at least a fraction larger would be more appealing when combining the pumpkins into a table runner.
- Clip the curves in the leaf applique a bit better.
I've assumed my post on the new orange fabric. I will be obeyed!
Don't mess with me,
