The fabulous folks at Shannon Fabrics, the maker of the Cuddle fabric brand (and other fabulous fabrics for making Funky Friends) hosted an Ellie Elephant Sew-along last week as part of their “Sew Together” series.


Video SEW ALONG Shannon Fabrics

Theresa, the Shannon sewing instructor, made Ellie at 120% in order to accommodate the extra bulk of fluffy fabrics and she goes over how to adjust your printer settings to “poster” mode for that increase. The event took place on Facebook LIVE over 3 days, but here is a LINK to their blog where you can view all the action without sifting through their Facebook timeline.

Teresa’s 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.
