If you’ve ever held Cuddle® and thought “I wish I could wear this”, this is the tutorial for you!
Join National Educator Teresa Coates for the next episode of Sew Together Tuesday as she shares her tips on sewing the Toaster Sweater (Sew House Seven Patterns) — a sweatshirt-style top that is suitable for all sorts of knits, including Cuddle® minky.
She'll discuss the pattern variations, fabric choices and steps to create a Toaster Sweater of your own. For the eleventh stop on her Season 10 tour, Teresa and Hawke will be broadcasting live from Quilting Mayhem in Snohomish, Washington on both YouTube and Facebook.
She’ll also discuss ways to use Cuddle® for apparel and will reference back to the popular video "Apparel Sewing Tips for Cuddle® Minky Plush Fabric"!
