Basic Block ready !

Remember to share your thoughts below.

Yes! The Basic Bock No. 5-2019 is now ready. It looks a bit Mondrian inspired! Maybe I should take that idea a bit further…? I think I will look into that here in the near future.

Now let’s head on to the next project – a wool wrap top!

Overlocking away !

Remember to share your thoughts below.

When sewing in jersey, using an overlock machine is the most common method. It joins the pieces with an elastic seam, while overcasting and trimming the edges at the same time. It uses a whole lot of thread compared to hand-stitching, but, as often is the case, is much, much faster.

My overlock is a vintage industrial one, but still works like a charm! And have done so, for about 20 years or so.

Back to the Work Room.

Let’s put the machine to work!
