Not a day goes by that I do not hear those iconic words “Yooooooo Gabbbba Gabbbbba” coming from the T.V. It is by far Little Mister’s favorite show. And to tell the truth, I enjoy it as well! We’ve been lucky enough to see the live show twice, and had the great pleasure of meeting the (very nice) DJ Lance Rock. I wanted to get him some YGG clothing for the winter, but since YGG merchandise is a little difficult to find, I decided to make my own! The pullovers I purchased blank from a discount store, and I dove into my scrap fleece bin to create the appliqués. The character images were downloaded from the printable section on the Nick. Jr. website, and ironed on with Steam A Seam 2. What a pain! And, for the record, do not iron Minky. Just don’t! All the little bumps flattened and there was nothing I could do to pop them back out. Muno (the red one eyed one) was the easiest, and the first time I have tried embroidery on my machine. I set the zig zag stitch and length to achieve the satin stitch look, and used an open embroidery foot to sew around the appliqué. I think I need to work on my tension, I had some ripples with the last two. I had two needles break while working on Plex (the yellow robot), so I went out and bought some heavier needles and that fixed the problem!
