|stitching on the side!|
Let us take a look at the pink and teal pineapple... so you see the stitching, well somehow I missed the fact on the first one that you were supposed to twist the embroidery thread around it! Guess what, it was there in black and white! Clear as day in the directions! Lets all laugh at me now! The first one I did was the pink one and I reread the pattern when I made the other three and kicked myself for not seeing that! Lesson learned because can I tell you how long it took to do that after this bad boy was already stuffed! (But, I secretly like the way it looked! sshhh)
I did correct my error on the other three and I LOVE the way these little pineapples look! I did get a little carried away with the two tone look! And I was so crazy psyched to have fun coloured embroidery thread that I had to use some fun colours! I also, as a new sewer, have to thank her for the clear directions on the satin stitch! Some of the things on my new machine are still very new to me and I learned something new (ummm that would be stitch length and width hehe)
