An Oven Mitt
I tried another sewing pattern in my "One Yard Wonders" book. I used fabric from my mom's fabric stash again. Thanks Mom! I started making this project on my Pfaff. I've determined that my Pfaff really needs a cleaning and servicing so I pulled out my back up machine (my Babylock machine called "Molly") and it worked like a dream.
I bought the Babylock machine last year when I was afraid I had broken my Pfaff right at the beginning of my Etsy Christmas rush. Turns out my Pfaff was fine so I've not used the Babylock that much.
I pulled out the Babylock manual yesterday and kicked myself for not exploring it sooner. It's very user friendly. There is a page for each stitch and it specifies what foot you should use, what stitch length, what stitch width you should use, etc. Excellent! I was especially excited to discover a special foot for a stitch which makes a really nice overlock stitch on raw edges, much like a serger.
