She wound up with a small bleed and swelling in her brain. So needless to say I havent sewn a thing.. I have been attending to her.. I am hoping to get a few done this week.

Just been hugging and cuddling her so much..

Poor baby! That must have been so traumatic!

Cuddling's way more important than sewing!

Using thin microfleece inside and a heavier weight fleece outside is supposed to help with this...BUT...I make all my pockets with an absorbent inner layer like flannel, cotton fleece or velour. I had too many problems with fleece or suedecloth on the inside. I do find that I need to topstitch the legs so the inner stays inside, reducing the chance of wicking. Also, if doing absorbent inner fabric, I avoid using a decorative cotton outside over the PUL. The wetness can just go right around the corner, avoiding the PUL completely.

I finally got one sewed... It turned out Ok.. Not GREAT.. I dont like the metal snaps.. But the good news is she loved it and couldnt wait for it to get out of the Dryer. I didnt even get any pictures. She wanted it on NOW!!! and she loved it and that is what mattered.

she is doing okay we have to watch her for 2 weeks.. thank you for asking.
