Lark Sweatshirt embellished with Pfaff Creative Icon



This looks like an ordinary sweatshirt, right?  Well we need to take a closer look at the sleeve





I saw a sweatshirt in an Evereve catalog that appeared in my mailbox.  It was a basic sweatshirt with some decorative stitches down the center of the sleeve.


It was a great look and I had the perfect lightweight french terry that would work.  I was looking at my options on my Pfaff Creative Icon and I came upon the Floating Sitches.  What are floating stitches?  From the Pfaff website "Use new PFAFF exclusive Floating Stitches that look like they have no connection point!"  Let me tell you these are amazing.  These floating stitches can be used to embellish or can be used to sew two pieces of fabric together.   I used the floating stitches last year on dresses for my granddaughters and this is an amazing stitch.
They were going to be perfect and fun for my sweatshirt, which is the Linden Sweatshirt by Grainline Studio

Here is a good closeup of the floating stitches, the fabric is still a bit folded but I need to wash it to get rid of the rest of the wash-away stabilizer.  On my Instagram highlights, I have the story saved on my how-to.  The videos on this format are so good and easy to watch.



This was just a fun sweatshirt to do and now I have one with some extra. 



Our Missouri weather bounces from chilly to hot and humid, so this will be a good garment to have for these mixed-up days.

The French Terry was in my stash, I cannot remember where I purchased it.

  1. I don't have a Instagram account so I can't look you up but I have questions. I have only done the floating stitch on cotton fabrics. Did you do anything special for the bulk of the terry?

    1. Sorry for the late reply. I used some cut away stabilizer to help with the stretch of the terry.
