This time instead of taping the pattern piece to the fabric, I used a sharpie to draw around it on the WS. If I am going to continue "sewing" then I really should invest in some washable pens and maybe even a rotary cutter to help me cut the fabric. It is just so nerve-racking and feels so final. With knitting or crocheting I can unravel, not with sewing. A cut is final.
You can barely see the lines on the fabric, which is a good thing.
It was actually much easier to cut when I have the pattern piece taped on because the paper + tape gives it structure. Oh well, lesson learned. I glued the pieces as I discussed previously, and this time went much faster.
One of the points is a little wonky, but I don't thin you'd even notice if I didn't point it out. It will still be adorable on my Lucky little boy. This time I used tweezers to help me turn these skinny tubes right side out.
I really can't wait until we move and I can have a sewing machine. (We are hoping to get a larger place to live, and it doesn't make sense for me to acquire more stuff before this move happens. This is why I have this "when we move I get a sewing machine" mindset.)

The project was a lot of fun, and I think that Lucky will be able to wear it for a while. I took these pictures of him just after Halloween.
For not having access to a sewing machine, this fabric glue has served me well for a number of projects. I still have some fabric in my stash, what else should I make?
