Remember my photo challenge ‘stitch‘ last week? I happened to mention how I’ve struggled to master the twin needle, to the point that I was planning smuggling a coverstitch machine into the house. You guys gave me so much advice!
Tonight I’ve been experimenting with stitch selection for my next project – The Brooklyn Hoodie from SBCC.
I was looking for a stitch to flatten down the seams and give more of a rtw feel to it.
Just as I was pressing a few buttons, I saw IT!!!!
Where did that come from????
Had it just appeared, or had it been hidden amongst this little lot all the time??
How pretty!! And neat!! And easy!! Everything ran smoothly, I just threaded it up, no really special way except not tangling the threads.
I really don’t know how I missed this hidden gem of a button.
Anyone who knows me in real life will know that I’m a bit OCD about reading instructions. To the point I downloaded the full manual for my washing machine and read it before it was installed. I did the same for this sewing machine before it was delivered! At least I thought I did!
So thanks again for all your comments!
Does anyone else have that button on their machine? Have a look, you might have!
I’ve just stumbled across some fantastic tips that I’ve not heard before from Oliver and S. Definitely worth a read….and no mention of the button either!!
