First of all, thank you all so much for your needle suggestions! I will be needle shopping the first chance I get. Maybe I hated EPP before because I wasn’t using the right needle!
See that gray in the stitching lines? Um, yeah. Not supposed to be there. That is the furry back coming up through the stitching holes. I have no idea why this happened or how to fix it. The backing is plenty thick and furry and I used a low loft poly batt. Cotton batting might have helped prevent the fur coming through. This furry stuff has plenty of stretch to it which adds another element of difficulty.
Sigh….apparently this was not one of my better ideas. I have to remind myself that this is going to an 18 month old and I want him to drag it around and wear it out. But it still bugs me when things don’t turn out as I would like them to.
I will get this finished this week and a pillow case to go with. Maybe washing will help. Spider-Man, behave or I will drop you in the washer!
