There are some pattern that work, and some ... not so much.
On the working front, I've made another two of those cute little bags (I blogged about them before in Jan and Feb 2017)
Finally they are also great gifts (the one below is heading in that direction).
I'll put it down to Learning Experiance.
Also, because this was the first time I used my new overlock machine (and in hindsight, using a lace/jercey combo for the first project was probably also not the best of ideas). There were some problems with that too, so ... as I said live and learn.
