Sewing Skill Level

While a beginner can make this project, familiarity with sewing terms and construction techniques is required. For best results sewing knits or high pile fleece, a serger or domestic machine with satin (zig zag) stitch is necessary. Grading between sizes and/or pattern adjustments may be required for perfect fit.
