1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Serger not looping- and def not my threading... ??? on: April 20, 2009 05:54:46 PM
 Huh  I have been using this serger for a few weeks now with no problems.  Then I changed it from the 3 thread stitch I was using to a 4 thread again, putting 2 new needles on in the process.  It wouldn't loop on the 4 stitch... so I tried the 3 stitch again, taking out the same needle I had before.  Still no looping. 

It is a Singer by the way.  Could this be because I changed the needles?  Did I do something wrong?  Or did it kaput on me somehow?

I decided to make some drool bandanas for a giveaway on my blog.  I thought it would be nice to do embroidery on one, even though I am such a newbie.



I definitely didn't do a perfect job but I am pleased with the overall look.  I will do this stitch again, even though it is pretty much only good for leaves.



This is the whole bandana along with the others.  I am enjoying embroidery more than I thought, I can't wait to learn some more stitches.  What would be a good one to learn next?

oh, and if anyone likes it you can enter to win it on my blog.  http://www.dirtydiaperlaundry.com

So cute! The embroidery came from this lady- http://zuill.us/andreablog/ under her 'free patterns', he was the first patterns I did too! Wonderful for a baby!

cool thanks for that, I wanted to give credit where credit was due! 

And thanks for the compliments.... I really want to get more into embroidery.  Once I learn some more stitches I would like to do one of The Giving Tree.

I have finally gotten time to craft again since my son was born.  I always meant to do this stitch from spritestitch.com but never got around to it while pregnant. 


It took 3 weeks or so, on a good day I could do one man, if my son was being needy it could take 2-5 days.  I am going to frame it and frame the cartidges to hang in his room.  This is the first real attempt at x stitch, I made a tiny one before but I don't count that.

The next is my first attempt at embroidery.  I found a free pattern (sorry can't remember the site and I forgot to bookmark it.)  Anyone seen it?  I didn't do the whole thing, I just wanted to see if I could do it.  I messed up a good bit, my stitches aren't always the same length and the hands and feet are a little wonky, but my kid doesn't know that!




thanks for looking at my first attempts!

I love these old fashioned desks and I always see them on craigslist.  I don't garden so plant stands are not good, but I would love to hear some other ideas.
