    Then I've got plans to make some baby/kids clothes, quilts and some stuffed animals and felt food.

    Can't wait!
    Looking forward to seeing what you make!

    A question for people with an overlocker:
    The pattern that I used to make DD2's pants said that I could just overlock the seams instead of stitching, because it naturally has a stretch in it which is ideal for sewing with stretch/knit fabrics. So I did that, but the seams look like this from the outside -

    Which doesn't look right, and doesn't look strong enough to hold up for as long as you'd want.
    Is there something to be done about it (have I done something wrong?) or do I still have to stitch all my seams before overlocking to finish?

    It looks like the tension on your straight stitch threads (the left hand ones) is a bit loose. Also, if you have differential feed, you can play with that for stretch fabrics so the seams don't go wavy.

    My overlocker can be used as a 3 or 4 thread but I always thread it up for 4 if I am not pre-sewing the seams.

    Thanks. I've just changed it to a rolled hem to see if that made a difference but it's the same problem. Might have to play with the tension and have a read of the manual to see if I can fix it.

    Awesome! Glad I could help. I don't get much time for sewing at the moment so the most I can contribute to this thread is advice!

    Has anyone bought a pattern from the one thimble e-magazines? I really like a cute baby shoe pattern but just want to know whether their patterns are reasonable easy to follow?

    I bought 2 of their magazines. The patterns are a collection from various people eg one of the issues had a pattern from boo designs.
    I don't have the baby shoe one though.
    I haven't made anything from there yet.

    They have a Facebook group and from what I have seen people there are really helpful and someone on there made the baby shoes.

    Made this for my friend's baby. She's due next month so I made it a bit bigger, hopefully it'll fit her for summer 😊
    Loving unicorns at the moment!
