Treadlette Tuesday: Rebecca's Green Appliqued Hoodie

This week on Treadlette Tuesday, we're sharing this gorgeous hoodie made by Treadlette Rebecca.


Don't be fooled by the intricate embroidery - Rebecca actually used a clever and time saving applique technique using an embroidered net fabric! She cut around the embroidered motifs and machine-appliqued them to the wool, then trimmed away any excess netting. The result is stunning - and faster than doing all that embroidery yourself!


Stay tuned for more Treadlette Tuesday, every week! We'll be bringing you pattern reviews, projects to share, favorite fabrics, and so much more.

Melissa is our resident Home Decorating Expert. She's always got a clever solution for sewing curtains, Roman shades, quilts, and pillows, and well as recovering chair seats and cushions.

If you've been in recently and seen (okay, played with) the sequined pillow on our counter, you've seen a little piece of Melissa's work. She tackled that tricky fabric fearlessly!

She's no slouch when it comes to garment sewing, though. Melissa can whip up cute blouses and dresses and has a knack for choosing fun and funky patterns.
