Lace Zips

I've found a way to use up those scraps of fabric, I just can't throw away!  A cheating patchwork on the machine, with a decorative blanket stitch. Topped off with a lace zip!!  

Which brings me back to the point of the post, I've just ordered many colours of Lace Zips!!

A new arrival in the form of a bicycle cotton print. 100% cotton print, 112cm wide & £12.00 per metre

Cover Stitch

Well, I've finally started having a proper play with my Janome Cover Stitch machine (Christmas present!) and my recently purchased attachments!  

So the binder is amazing, as you can see! Still playing with the tension, although the blogger who said "use the thread nets provided in the tool kit" should be applauded! It made such a difference to the evenness of the stitches.

The Hem Guide is also wonderful, holding the hem in place as you stitch.  A perfect stretchy hem, that doesn't pop when you stretch it!  But for doing my yoga trouser hems, I did resort to a strip of tape on the machine, to line the hem fold up with.  Old school, but the fabric is so soft & stretchy it didn't like being held in the guide!! 
Next lesson is attaching the waist elastic!
