    They look similar to the models I use.

    Are you using a pattern for the bibs?

    Yeah using a pattern I made... Going to get my partner to cut it out in wood so it's easier to trace around.. As I don't like the idea of pinning it on and cutting it out...

    Not yet... We have just broken our lease & I am paying double rent at the moment... So waiting until we aren't paying double rent before I spend that money... Just in case we have to pay double rent for ages! it sucks! I am so itching to get started!

    What did you think of the machines I posted??

    I think the sewing machine looked a good basic one. I would buy something like that. Again I wouldn't spend the money on an overlocker yet, at least until you get going and see if you really need it. If you are up for spending more money I would look at a sewing machine that did monograms and applique. They are pricey but with the items you are making it would be great to be able to put names etc on to personalise them. That's what I'll be looking at next time I get a new machine.
