This week I made Eleanor a fleece sweater. I used another pattern from Ottobre Designs from their 4/2012 issue. It was really fast and easy. I could of had it done in an afternoon if my husband didn't suddenly need me to go to town for him (half hour to the nearest grocery store).
I got the fleece from fabric.com. I was expecting the caterpillars to be much smaller, but I still like it.
The only problem I had was with topstitching. They said to topstitch with the edge of the pressure foot as a guide, but that was the same size as my seam allowance, so it didn't tack down the seam allowance very nicely. Next time I make it I will adjust what I do to make it look nicer inside.
All that matters is that Eleanor loves it, especially the hood. She was wearing it while we read the book Do You Have a Hat? and nearly each time it asked that she said, "Yes, it's on my head."
