EDIT-I think you will agree, this one is much better. I had more control, with the opposite end of the band, by tacking with a few hand stitches, before I sewed it with my regular machine. It is so small when you make the circle, it is hard to have control of it and still stitch fairly nice.----------Cuties this is something I tried today. I wanted our girl to have something emb related, representing all the prayers for her tomorrow, from Cuties. I had trouble with the denim fraying and catching in the stitching. If I have time, which I doubt seriously I will, I will make her another one with a cotton fabric. The red, white and blue I tried first. The 'Bravery for Avery' is what I want her to wear. My first time to try this and not sure if it will fit, but the back has the elastic, so we will see. Both times I couldn't hold, even tho I pinned the elastic even, but it is the back...I sewed one end in the hoop and the other after I un-hooped. It is very small, so that is why it is hard to stitch the elastic even, for me anyway. I think the first ones edge looks better because it was satin stitched navy like the denim. Oh well, that's what I did today.-Toogie

And yes, Toogie, we continue to pray for this beautiful young lady!

Sorry, I must have missed reading about your little grand daughter--hope all goes well--my prayers are with the entire family--Pray that God's healing hands transfer to the surgeon. Hold fast in belief that all will be well. I see no fraying only a lot of love that went in to the stitching!!

Avery will love them Toogie. I know I do/Lillian

Awesome designs. Nothing wrong with the fray. Just means sometimes we get a little wobbly when we are scared. But if we stand strong our bravery will win the fight. God Bless you and your family as you go through this tough time . May the Angels stand fast and the good Lord surround Avery and your family with His love and protection.

Stitched with LOVE nothing wrong with that, I think they are cute! Give your little one a big hug from all of us and prayers are winging their way to heaven as always for Miss Avery. Also for the Dr.s nurses and most especially the parents and grandparents. hugs

you could do one side on stabilizer and embroider, cut out other piece sew together with sewing machine with elastic facing in, leave an opening and turn right side out and top stitch. just a suggestion.

Good job on this. Could you have zig zag around the edge on a regular machine after trimming? Prayers for Avery.

Dear Toogie, I also want to add my good wishes and prayers for Avery's surgery. Also for the doctors and nurses attending and all the families involved with this operation. God be with you all, love Chris

I'm adding my prayers for Avery to have a successful surgery and a quick recovery. I hope her nutrition issues will be solved. Please let us know how she is doing tomorrow.

According to Lidia, it is a great idea. And from me too, best wishes for Avery tomorrow.

About "denim", I made a lot of coaster withs this fabric, and I can say that this is the outline width that hides fraying.

widest points = nice clean outline

I don't speak english very well and I use a translator, ...I hope I explained well, and you understand what I mean
Hugs, Céline

Avery, parents, Nora, and grands all in my prayers. Hoping we get a great result for her.
