I finished the hoodie for my niece today. I was a little worried it wouldn't fit over her head, but it fits over mine so we should be fine. The applique turned out pretty good - eyes and mouths are tricky. I used sulky embroidery thread for the green, yellow, and flesh, silver gutterman, and white aurofil. I used a metallic needle for the sulky and gutterman and am happy with the results. Hopefully the birthday girl will like it - I'll find out next weekend.
