|Threading it is... Tricky!|
I now have 4 different colours to thread it with (black, white, navy and red) and the more I use it the more I love it. It gives my sewing a very 'professional' air and means I can stop seams fraying with very little effort.
Rainbows coat was made with it and today I thought I'd share a couple of other bits that feature overlocked seams.
First up - arm warmers. These were made when I was in an experimental mood so I pinned the fleece around my arms, cut it to size and whizzed the overlocker along the edges. I then decided they were too plain and added felt stars. I have to admit, I love these and have worn them frequently! The perfect addition to a half length sleeve top when I'm not quite chilly enough for a jumper.

|So nice to have the sun shining in!|

This was made from left over Rainbow coat material for my step-daughter, who has been very patiently waiting for a blanket of one sort or another to be made for a while now. It was a very quick sew as I pinned it together every which way, ran it through the sewing machine then tidied it up with the overlocker. I think it's popular - it got whisked off the bed and curled up in on the sofa all day before being dragged back to bed in the evening!
So there you have it - overlockers are awesome! Check back on Thursday if you'd like to see a larp shirt :)
