Lolliepops for Sundress

Lolliepops for Sundress

Postby lollielean » Sat Oct 20, 2012 11:32 am

I recently made the Lolliepop Sundress (pictures coming soon) and while I didn't end up putting the Lolliepops on the dress as they just didn't look right with the color scheme I chose, I did have difficulty with the Lolliepops curling. I had the right number of stitches but they kept curling up a bit. Is this normal and you just fix it when you stitch it on? I ask because I did like the pattern and I will probably make it again with the Lolliepops.

Hello Calleen :)

Do you mean when you are sewing them on or do you mean when you are making the actual lollipop? If it is when you are making the actual lollipop, I would maybe try adjusting your hook size and seeing if that helps.

If it is when you are whipstitching it on, I would just stitch closer to the edge of the lollipops and that way the edges will be tacked down more securely ;)

I hope this helps!!
