Hi DeeDee - I am sorry you had a problem with the set. Did you see the instructions in the pdf file? The step-by-step instructions include photographs and is pretty detailed. Robnursie76:
Love this set! Making the cat for a sweet little 5 year old who loves cats. BUT the project instructions version 2 did not download as stated. Never did a zippered ITH project before and would appreciate any tips. Thanks in advance.cooperregina:
DeeDee1960, I just stitched this out to see what it looked like. I stitched the horse. It turned out cute. I think the directions could be better but I was able to figure it out so I will add some tips here, either for you or someone who sees this set and wants to make it later. Nursie76, I hope you were able to get some help back in 2012. :) Tips: 1. It looks like Carol was giving us options: use two files and stitch out the zipper placement separately or just use one file and do the last five colors first. I used my editing software to move the last 5 steps in the Horse file to the start and used one file. 2. I hopped tearaway and stitched the zipper. I stitched the zipper's tack down steps before laying the fabric on as Carol did because I have had things shift on me before. Just a personal preference. 3. After stitching the 5 zipper placement steps, I unhooped this piece, pulled off the tearaway, unzipped the zipper about half way and set it aside. If you don't unzip the zipper partially before attaching it to the front, you won't be able to turn it right side out. 4. I hooped cutaway instead of tearaway for the front piece because it doesn't really matter and I felt like it would give it more body. 5. I skipped forward in the thread changes and stitched out the tack-down outline before actually starting to stitch out the face, then went back in thread changes. It's a personal preference. I just like to have the fabric secure and I try to avoid the adhesive spray when I can. 6. I stitched out the rest of the face (front piece) 7. Next I laid the zipper piece (back piece) face down on top of the face so that the right sides were together. It would have been nice to have a placement marker but I just eye-balled it and it turned out fine. I went nice and slow over the zipper to make sure it was lined up. (I would also float a piece of fabric under the hoop here if you want the inside to look neater. 8. I unhooped and trimmed about 1/4" from the stitching, clipping at the curves. 9. I opened the zipper the rest of the way and then turned it right-side out. Done! I'm very fortunate to have editing software. If anyone is trying this SewWhatPro is a good one and is only $65.
