Do you see this evil machine? And can you see those threading instructions!?
I was doing fine with the cute pants pattern I chose...the zipper even lined up! So, I thought, I'll get my serger out and put it to good use. It makes such beautiful, straight seams....if you're holding your mouth right. I got two outside seams done when the gremlins came to visit. What did I ever do to them? I didn't put water on them! All of a sudden, the machine stops making it's lovely seams. No particular reason that I can tell. So, I open it all up and pull on each string to see which one is messing up. There are FOUR of those suckers! I figure out it's the purple one. Oh goodie....the hardest one to thread. Out comes the magnifying glass and the foot long tweezers, cuz there's no way you're getting your fat fingers in there. Twenty minutes later, I think I have it figured out, but it's still not working. I give up! I'm sure I'll re-visit my bane tomorrow. Unless I'm at the skate park, which is where I usually spend my Saturdays. Any of you with sergers out there that have made it to the end of this post and have any helpful hints for me, I'm ready and waiting.
And I'll keep you posted on whether or not the pants get finished.
