Darling Bear-Themed Baby Projects to Embroider and Sew in Cuddle® Minky Fabric

Darling Bear-Themed Baby Projects to Embroider and Sew in Cuddle® Minky Fabric

Hi, it's Reen from The Embroidery Garden! I wanted to thank you for the great response to my new "in the hoop" bibs, burp cloths and bear lovie designs! Here, I'm sharing a bit more on what fabrics I used to create them.

Many of you asked about the fabrics I used in my samples. All the fabrics are from Shannon Fabrics. You can purchase these fabrics from your local quilt shop and online retailers. All the fabrics I used are soft, absorbent, washable and texturally appealing to babies.

Fabrics used:

Cuddle® 3

Cuddle® 3 is a micro-fiber plush that is ultra-soft. The short pile makes it extremely easy to machine embroider on as you can see in the photos. Just use a film type of water-soluble topper to keep the stitches from sinking in.

Embrace® Double Gauze

Embrace® is Shannon Fabrics soft double-gauze fabric. It is 100% cotton, breathable and comes in solids and fun prints. It is perfect for baby items.

10 Ounce Turkish Waffle

I also used their 10 Ounce Turkish Waffle for the back side of some of the bibs and burps. It is textured and 100% cotton.

16 Ounce Terry Cloth

Shannon Fabrics 16 Ounce Terry is very absorbent and was used on the back side of several of my samples. Below is a breakdown of the fabrics that were used in each design.

Bear-themed embroidery and sewing projects for Cuddle®*:

*Editor's Note: Some of these fabrics have been discontinued but you can substitute with fabrics of your choice.

Note: I added 'crinkle' material to the bear lovie. It's texturally and sensory appealing to babies. But you can leave it out and the project is just as lovable.
