No, we don't have princesses 'round here.  Maybe she's a senator....

We seem to have at least one Spice Girl, and several other imports, do
we have a princess in the posse?

I thought you had Fergie...  You didn't send her back, did you?  Oh, I
know she's faulty, but she was cheap!

Oh, gosh, maybe I misplaced her.  That happens a lot around here.  Maybe
I should check under a truckdriver....

No, rather of a fair size, brunette, and Latino.  Sure could dance, though.

Thanks!

I would not want to try either product, because the thread
is a shiny rayon (might not hold anyway) and I would not
want the glue to show through on the right side.  I have
ironed a fusible stabilizer on the back of finished work a
couple of times to prevent scratchiness against tender skin,
and that might also help keep the threads from pulling.
Hmmm, maybe I should have done that in this case.  However,
I went through an entire roll of cut-away stabilizer, and a
cone of rayon thread and bobbin thread.  All of which were
donated, so I think I've done my part.

Beverly,

I'm curious.  Are you concerned about the embroidery's durability
because of the width the satin stitch?  The reason I ask is that the
satin stitch I've done around appliques on children's clothing has
always held up well, even with lots of wear and repeated
laundering...but it was never that wide.

Would you elaborate when you have time, please?  Thank you kindly.  :)

Yes, I'm concerned because it is quite wide, and has no
anchoring stitch anywhere in the middle. A step-satin would
have laid down 3 or four (or more) stitches in an area as
wide as 1/4".  If you scroll down this page, you'll see
examples of various step-satin stitches.
http://embird.com/sw/embird/fonteng.htm
They say; "Satin stitches lettering of large size should be
used with Pattern option on, to avoid too long stitches and
to add texture to a large stitched areas."

I agree with that but I was overruled.

I've also done tight zig-zag satin stitches to attach
badges, etc. and never had a problem, but those were usually
no wider than about 1/8".

If these stitches get snagged, I'm afraid they will pull,
and might even pull out.  But, as Joanne pointed out, they
will be wearing these for a year or less, so with any luck
they will survive.

Thank you for the explanation and the link.  Far as I know, there's no
embroidery machine in my future but it's nice to learn about them just
in case.

The jackets look fabulous!

You're welcome.  It took me until just a few years ago to
finally add one to my stable of machines.  I love-Love-LOVE
it!  It is absolutely the most fun thing I have bought
myself in many years.  And the added bonus:  DGD also loves
it and we play together.  ;-)

My boys have baseball caps that have very, very wide stitces for the
embrodery,  6cms in some places,  on them in a "great" (their
discription not mine) logo but it's has started to unravell fairly
quickly on one but not the other, so I see why you might be concerned.
Not that I have a solution, sorry

Yes, well that's what has me worried.  And the fact that not
all the parents may be aware that I suggested a *different*
stitch.  Ah, well, I did the embroidery for free, so they
can hardly complain about the cost.  ;-}
