Tips for Sewing the “My Lambie” Children’s Playmat

  • Trace around each paper pattern piece with a ball point or felt tip pen on the wrong side of the fabric. Transfer markings to wrong side of fabric as you trace.
  • Trace all pattern pieces before cutting.
  • Cut the Llama Cuddle® from back with short scissors, running blade just under the knit backing. Cut backing only, avoiding the long fibers. After cutting around piece, gently pull apart, separating fibers.
  • Use your walking foot or the even feed feature on your sewing machine.
  • Use a 90/14 or 100/16 Stretch sewing needle.
  • Use a pressing cloth or scrap of muslin to protect Cuddle® when pressing.
  • Double-check to make sure you’ve caught the entire edge of the Upper Head.
  • As you sew on the ears, you may want to use the hand- crank to sew through all the layers. Go slowly and work the fabrics through using a stiletto, if needed.
  • Wonder Clips work great to hold the thick layers together and in place.
  • Sew very slowly, using a stiletto as needed to help feed the fabric through the machine and keeping the fibers tucked inside.
