Progress on the leggings has been a bit slow this week. Too many mistakes and a bit more playing about. When it came to adding the pocket the pattern suggested using a twin needle, something I just couldn’t resist. Not that I know what I am doing. I didn’t even know that they existed before I started playing with the new machines.
The big news is that I still don’t really know what I am doing and have yet to complete this part of the pattern. I have lots of bits of sewing on the oddments of material that I have but nothing on the actual leggings. I did try to but it just wouldn’t work right. I shall have to do some more playing and a bit more research :).
I do now have the ‘back’ to the leggings now:
As my lovely sister-in-law said – a bit blowy to wear yet! Lets hope that this week is slightly less busy and I get more done!
I did learn some lessons however:
1. Don’t rush – I sewed the pieces together the wrong way around (Shhhh I know!)
2. Don’t sew when tired (see above!)
3. Unpick in daylight (SO much easier and you are less likely to put little holes in the material ;))
So there you have it. Do you have any advice when it comes to using twin needles?
PS: It would appear that I didn’t break the other machine – it must have been the dust that went up in smoke! (Phew!)
