The Fall/Winter sewing is in full swing at my house and today’s projects is one of my favorites so far!  This was my first venture into Squishy Fluffy stuff!

The Toothless/Batman Squishy Fluffy stuff is currently on preorder at Poppy Kettle Fabrics, It is doublesided minky – all the softness of minky on BOTH sides!  One side is printed with the design and the opposite side is a soft, lush white. So it is as soft on the inside as the outside – with no lining needed!

The Squishy Fluffy stuff doesn’t have the stretch of cotton/lycra so I wasn’t sure how it would do with clothing.  But it does have a slight stretch across and more stretch on the bias. I decided to give it a go, but to use cotton/lycra for all of the bands.

I used two very basic patterns for this set as I had not worked with the doubled sided minky before and wasn’t sure what it would be like using it for clothing. For the top, I used the Ringer Tee pattern – free from Brindille & Twig!  I did cut the front neckline just a tiny bit lower (about 1/2″) only in the very front to ensure that it would fit over Kai’s head, given the minky does not have much stretch.  I kept the neckband the same as the pattern called for. This worked perfectly!  It easily slipped over Kai’s head without looking too low once on.

For the pants, I used the Foldover Pocket Pants pattern, also from Brindille & Twig.  I love these basic pants, although I usually skip the pockets. I did not make any modifications to this pattern at all.

I did size up on both patterns. I sewed the 12-18 month size. They fit perfectly.  Kai is currently wearing the 9-12 month size, but I wanted to make sure I accommodated the lessor stretch. I think they will fit well into fall/winter still.

The squishy fluffy stuff DOES shed a ton! But as soon as it is serged, it stops. If I did not have a serger, I would definitely overcast the edges on the regular sewing machine.

I love this Squishy Fluffy stuff SO MUCH and see many more cuddly outfits for Kai in the future!
