uncovering mysteries

After way (way!) too many hours this afternoon attempting to get the tension correct on the overlocker, I’m finally ready to get a start on a second pair of giant baggy lounging pants.

If I’d given in and zig zagged the raw edges instead, I’d be wearing the giant baggy lounging pants right now.

I might not have pants but I feel a whole lot more knowledgeable about how the machine works – and maybe I won’t have the same challenges next time I want to swap the thread!

(For Future Me, make sure the thread is sitting tightly inside the tension wheels!)

  1. I’ve had my overlocker for at least 10 years now. It will NOT let me thread it, so I have to bribe sewing friends to do the deed. Difficult right now. I give in and zig-zag the edges. If it was good enough for Chanel…

      They seem the epitome of terrible design.

      Next up, tackling curves.
