Sad title I know… but I had to think of another S word to replace the shonky shirring title from a while ago – because all I have to say today is:
“Yay for Miss Pfaff!!”
During Abbie’s naptime today I decided to be brave and try out Miss Bernina & Miss Pfaff for size now that my head is feeling a bit clearer.
Seriously – I think I’m in love!
The 3 machines worked very well in harmony together, meaning that I can now work even more quickly and effectively. Not that this was the initial plan – but I would definitely say it’s a very huge benefit!
So Miss Bernina gets to overlock…
And Miss Pfaff gets to shirr to her little hearts content….
And in no time at all (well considering that I had to make up the pattern as I went along and all) I had made 2 pretty cute dresses:
The dress I’d promised Hannah:
Her choice of fabric again funnily enough!
And a cute dress/onesie for a friend’s baby:
I could NOT believe how easy Miss Pfaff made shirring!! It was successful on the first try- hip hooray, hip hooray!! I did loosen the screws in the bobbin though before I started this time (on the advice of the man at the sewing shop) – so Big Brother would possibly like shirring a bit more if I did that too – but I’m not willing to try now that I have another solution…
So lets just say I’m a very happy bunny! I can see me getting a LOT of use out of my two new babies…
