While I was away on holidays the fabulous folks at Shannon Fabrics, (the makers of Cuddle® fabric) hosted a sew -along with my Puppy Pete Pattern!


This was part of their “Sew Together Tuesday” series and was streamed LIVE in the Cozy Creative Center shop in El Cajon, Calif…


BUT you can
still watch the video!!! 😀

The Shannon National sewing instructor, Theresa, sewed the Puppy Pete Pattern at the original size (= 100%) and used BROWN C3 Cuddle® for the body, BLACK C3 Cuddle® for the nose…. and used  Luxe Cuddle® Frosted Shaggy Brown/Beige for the ears. 


How fluffy cute
are the EARS?


Teresa completed the Puppy Pete Pattern in one session so you can sew your own Puppy Pete while you watch the fun video! She has got LOTS of great TIPS for working with fluffy fabrics include how to pin Cuddle® and what types of cutting tools work best for fluffy/furry fabrics.
