Inspiration Anthro : Blossoms Cardigan : Steps 8-12

Today we are going to sew the back blossom onto the cardigan.

8- By now all of your back blossom pieces should be securely adhered to the cardigan.

9- Thread your sewing machine with matching thread. (It is pretty important for the thread to match well as the sewing is a little tricky and less visible it is the better.) Also, you can change to a ballpoint needle if you have one. I don't this is necessary, but may make the stitches a little more uniform on this stretchy fabric.

10- Using a normal straight stitch, edgestitch about 1/8" away from each edge of all shapes. This can be a little tricky, especially on the really curvy ones, but go slow and be patient. It's worth it I promise and it gets easier as you go along.

11- Clip all loose threads and press once more. Now admire your handiwork.

12- Now, continue the same steps for the front of the cardigan and watch it slowly come together.

Check back in a couple of days for pictures of the finished cardigan.
