You are my sunshine
My only sunshine
You make me happy when skies are grey...

My mother's day present arrived yesterday and I've been playing with it ever since.
It was a bit daunting reading the manual and thinking, this couldn't be any easier if it were written in Japanese : p

I did a trial of the jacket with some spare fleece and cut out the 110cm size templates first.
I tested it by placing the pieces directly on Little Miss and decided that the sleeves were way too big and long. So then, I placed the 100cm template on top and snipped to size.

This is how it has turned out so far.

So far as good. I tried it on her this morning and it fitted quite well.
I'm not sure if I want to finish off making the collar, buttonholes and pockets or jump right into the real jacket.

I'm so in love with how it overlocks the edges while cutting it neatly for me.
Such bliss.


  1. I got one recently and LOVE it! Though I have to say that it is totally worth doing a course at your local sewing centre to get your head around all the functions. I did a class on the weekend and there were so many, "WOW, I can do THAT?!?" moments, I can't wait to get into testing the overlocker out some more. I love the rolled hem feature so much, and they taught me how to do cute little frilly lettuce leaf hems on jersey fabric, and how to properly start and finish it off, so good!

    Anyway, lucky you, that is an awesome present! Enjoy, Cherry
