So here is my new overlocker cover. I decided it should show something it could do rather than the sewing machine, so I did some decorative rows of flatlock stitch, alternating between loops up and bars up, instead of adding lots of applique. I need to buy thread for it in more colours, but the red I has worked well. I just had to add the heart and some more machine embroidery.
I added a flap so I can reach the carry handle. This time I quilted it and added buttons again to just hold it down. I took a closer shot so you can see my favourite little strings of hearts I put on the sewing machine flap - like bunting! You can see the the random embroidery trails on both covers.
I am really pleased. They look rather American Folk rather that English Roses don't they. I just love the colours. So what next? Oh yes, I have those feet to try out, and a rather cute pair of pinstriped denim shorts to convert into a bag, and a sweater I thought I might play with. Don't you just love sewing!
