Well it's taken me over a year, but my Ebay overlocker has finally been switched on and stitched up!
My in-laws came over for lunch yesterday so my mother-in-law gave me a quick overlocker lesson. It took me half an hour of searching the house to find the power cord (for some reason it had ended up packed away in the study).
My overlocker is a little different to my mother-in-laws but she worked it out quick smart. We just had to play around with the tension a bit to get the stitching correct.
My next challenge is to use some of the beautiful corduroy that Sherrin sent me to make a pair of pants, but I think I might make a pair of cotton drill pants with the overlocker first before I try with corduroy.
Wish me luck....I'm going to need it!
