I made a hat. Lots of mistakes, but I don't care, it just adds to the character and I've learned loads.

It's reversible too!

Thanks all.

I'm about to try and make this into some undies. I won't subject you to pictures of those though. :P

What pattern are you using, GJ? I’ve seen a really comfy looking briefs pattern by ‘Made By Jack’s Mum’ and have used her patterns to make Russell some trunks, and Darwin some matching trunks and briefs (OMG so cute, by the way...) and they are a great fit.

These are even in a scrap of that fabric you liked! So cute and dinky.

Yes, it's the MBJM wonder undies. If it goes okay I shall get the superhero ones too. All cut out so far, just having a break before I face threading up my overlocker for the first time (will practice on scraps first). It's out of the box and I have taken the wrappers off the cones, so half way there!

You probably know already, but just in case: if you sign up to the MBJM newsletter you get the kids trunks/briefs pattern for free, too. They go up to age 12, so may be on the cusp of usefulness for you?

Omg. You bought an overlocker? Awesomesauce. Mine came ready-threaded! I’ve threaded it far too many times, since. Still causes me grief! What machine did you get?

I got this in a special offer with the wonder undies. If all goes well, I might have a go for my niece. :)

Mine did too, but the first weekend I got my sewing machine out I made myself go over a few things, now if something happens, rather than get frustrated about it, I've sorted it in seconds.

I've threaded to overlocker, but something has come out somewhere and my back is aching from peering into it with my phone torch! :D

I might go back to it later or tomorrow with fresh eyes (and back). It's a Singer 14SH754 nothing expensive or fancy, but good to learn the basics on I hope.

I don’t know how much difference there is between them, really! It’s got four threads, like mine, which I think gives a few more options than the three thread versions, but they generally do one thing, very well (though I have recently started using mine for blind hemming, too).

Have fun making your jazzy pants! If you find any good fabric suppliers for jersey fabrics, please share :D

I can now thread my overlocker like a pro! I am also wearing homemade Jazzy pants. B)

I bought some jersey from Pound Fabric for practicing on, and some SCUBA to see what the fuss is about (I don't like the texture personally). I've just had an order from Fabricasa with favourite jersey yet, I can't decide what to make with it though! I might just hug it, it makes me happy...

Well that's your weekend sorted then! :D

I can appreciate why people like it, I just don't like anything with a terracotta texture. I'm sure as a child I wore some clothes make out of a similar synthetic fabric and it made me come out in a rash. Can't remember what it was called though, I just think viscose.
