1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Finally first thing made! Rockets & Stars Robe 4 son on: April 06, 2010 03:02:43 AM
Over two years ago I got a wild hair up my tushie to take up sewing. Got the machine, fabric, all that jazz only life got in the way. Which made me all pouty because I found this beyond awesome fleece with rockets/stars/planets and was looking forward to doing something with it. And finally I did! Used NewLook 6847 pattern as a rough guide and am rather happy with how it turned out. So woohoo for little toddler robes! Thanks for looking I have lurked on this site for years in awe at everyone's creations I'm all excited to finally have one of my own to share Smiley

2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Major issues with Brother ES-2000 thread keeps sticking/bunching ;( on: January 12, 2009 06:57:45 PM
Finally I am ready. I sized the hoodie pieces according to one of the tutorials on here. Cut my fabric to scale and pinned where needed. I had tested the machine out a few days ago and it did fine. Only I have no clue what's going on now. I think somewhere I didn't thread something right. Please tell me if the picture below looks right to you? The thread seems off to me but every time I undo the whole thing and start fresh that's how ends up and when I go to sew within a few pumps the underside of the thread bunches up never actually threading fully. It's driving me crazy!

Any suggestions/advice/voodoo that works on sewing machine???

I'm all bummed this is my first project and I was so excited and now I want to throw it out a window.

Thanks in advance I hope someone has an idea what's going on.
