I know, it´s a bit greedy to wish for both a new sewing machine and a serger at the same time, but you see, I´m redecorating my studio/workspace and everything is turning out so lovely, except for the fact that my sewing machine is rubbish.
The thing is, I needed a quick fix. And, as I have been contemplating whether I should go “all the way” for self-stiched september and sew my own undies, I tried making a pair. What I didn´t take into consideration was that my sewing machine isn´t nearly as nice a lady as my mothers (the machine I´ve been using all summer), and a small fun project soon became a big hassle.
The main problem is that my machine does´nt sew an even zig-zag. And it constantly swallows the thread and then barks it up again, resulting in a million starts and stops. Maybe I´m doing something wrong? Or maybe the machine is rubbish.
All I know is that the fix didn´t turn out especially quick. Not quick at all. And it was not really a fix either. Oh, well. This little team, however, filled all my needs:
Yay! to home decor and Yay! to fantastic quilting fabric!
