Free Overlocker Patterns

Free overlocker patterns

This free overlocker patterns round up is sponsored by Janome.  

An overlocker or a coverstitch machine is a great piece of equipment if you enjoy sewing clothing or other items – particularly using stretch or jersey fabrics – and want a neat professional finish. In the US, an overlocker is known as a serger.

Janome have a great range of budget overlockers, air-threading overlockers and coverstitch machines to suit every need and budget. Find out about their overlocking range here

We have rounded up some great free projects for you to make with your overlocker. We have sorted them by topic – Dressmaking, kids and babies, for the home and pets so you can easily browse them.
