I received an awesome package from Babycakes. I love everything she sent.

Wall paintings of trees! I love trees!


Crocheted swiffer cover and dust mitt


I love putting on the dust mitt just to feel the softness of the yarn. I don't know if I can clean dust with this beautiful thing! LOL
Action shot:


Not one, but two half-aprons!


She also sent a pack of Magic Eraser, which I hear is very useful with kids around the house.
A pretty headscarf to keep my hair away while doing chores.
She also sent a pearl bracelet and earrings for me to look pretty while doing chores. Smiley
She also sent a taggie blanket to keep the baby busy while I do some house work.
And a crocheted dish scrubbie and pan scraper.


I love everything you sent Babycakes! Thank you so much!

4  How to change presser feet? in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by jaybee on: September 23, 2008 04:02:40 PM
I bought a used Singer Fashion Mate 22C a few months ago to teach myself some sewing.



It came with this foot, which I think is a zig-zag foot which also does straight stitching.


I've been using just this foot so far. I wanted to learn some more new things, so I went and bought 3 more feet. The guy at the store asked me what kind of foot shank I have - the snap-on kind or the screw kind. I told him I didn't know as I have never changed it before. So he checked my model number in his book and gave me these feet.

Zipper foot:


Gathering foot:


Rolled hem foot:


After reading up a little, I figured out that my machine uses both snap-on and screw kind. So the zipper one fit fine (it was a snap-on).


But I can't attach the other two (gathering and rolled hem feet) because I think they are the screw on kinds, and I can't remove the shank after removing the screw:


The shank is too tight. I applied some machine oil and used all my strength to get it off but it's not budging. Is it because its an old machine? How do I get it off so that I can attach the other feet?

Here are the pictures:

The contents of the box, wrapped in pretty Hello Kitty paper


Bag with a ton of pockets. I love the fabric!


Travel pillow with my name embroidered!


My favorite item was the t-shirt with my name and a butterfly stenciled on it. It's very very pretty!! I'm totally impressed!

Closeup of the awesome stenciling:


She sent me a tie-dye kit because we had discussed about it and I had told her that I'd like to try it sometime. I can't wait to try it!

I'm brand new to beading..I just started 2 days ago. I'm staying home to take care of my baby, so thought I'll start a new hobby.  

This is what I have made so far. Please feel free to comment and make suggestions on how I could improve.

Basic chain and bracelet - I wanted something really simple and colorful for summer
