I have made the Caron Folkwear Baby Caftan
and have finished the embroidery. I didn't know what I was doing but the front looks pretty good.
I didn't use knots to work the embroidery (except the french knots- har har) and just kind of wove everything under itself making a very ugly, but somewhat secure back.
I am afraid of loose threads with washing, plus baby's fingers getting caught in the sleeve thread embroidery, and it just takes a little stretching for the french knots (I made them pretty big, but not big enough maybe) to pop through to the back.
Can I cover this with interfacing? If so- what type? (Iron on? I did use Simply Soft for the project)
