And holy crap was it a pain! I have never sewed with PUL or knits before. Usually I can whip out a fitted in about 1/2 an hour minus the snaps.<br><br>
This one took me two hours... ARGH!!! And it seemed so hard...<br><br>
Here is the finished product.<br><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/111144073/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/111144073/</a><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/111144072/in/photostream/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/6731497...n/photostream/</a><br><br>
As you can see with one of the wings I had a bit of a time getting the PUL just right. I hope it doesn't end up wicking.<br><br>
Can someone please give me some pointers for working with PUL and knits. THe inner was sherpa. So I would be sewing along the sides and down at the bottom I would have about 1/2 in of PUL that now extended past the sherpa... what was up with that??? I think that is why I had such a hard time with it working!<br><br>
Help please! Especially since I have four more yards of PUL coming soon!!

I think it looks GREAT!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br><br>
Are you pinning? I've heard it's ok to pin PUL, since putting it in the dryer helps to seal the pin-holes...

My first AIO was a wreck. Yours looks great! Definitely pin, I probably use way more than I should. Also a walking foot really helps when sewing stretchy fabric.
