First a few tips when sewing with Cuddle Fabric.

  1. Cuddle fabric does shed. Shake the fabric out once you get it to free loose ‘fur’. If you have a hand vac for your sewing room use it to pick up excess fur around your sewing area or use a lint roller to pick up fibers.
  2. This fabric does shift, but takes well to pinning so don’t hesitate to pin to keep layers from shifting.
  3. Use a ball point needle when sewing Cuddle fabric.
  4. Don’t use an iron without a pressing cloth, if you do use an iron keep the temperature low.

    I have used Shannon’s Cuddle fabric to back quilts and have recently finished Later Gator as a gift. I don’t use batting because the fabric is amazing on its own! My local shop does not carry the scarf kits or any of the animal prints so this scarf would be aaaaammmazing!!!!
