After taking a substantial break from onesie creations, I'm back in business. I made this little pirate ship piece for a very dear friend of mine who just had a sweet baby boy. It came out really cute, but the needle kept trying to push the really thin parts (like the prow of the ship) down to where the bobbin is (if that makes sense). I just heard about some sort of backing fabric that is used for appliques, and I think that could help this problem. I have so much to learn about sewing!
