1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / military style gear - help with cordura and webbing, please?? on: March 31, 2014 08:47:14 PM
ok - so my stitches look decent and I have the molle spec down for making miltary style gear but the cordura i'm using as the base fabric (kinda like backpack material) keeps puckering and I cannot figure out why!

Using 1000 denier Cordura + 1" nylon webbing + 96 weight nylon webbing thread (basically upholstery weight and a custom bartack I made on the machine. I have the tension and the presser foot cranked down.

It might actually be that I have the wrong foot (I've tried using both feet that come with the machine that have the highest channel under the foot) OR I'm using the same weight thread in the bobbin and the top but check out the picture below and see what you think.

Oh - interesting! husband actually suggested something similar (about the tension and maybe needing oil).

thanks for the input - I'll check with the ladies I bought my machine from and see if they have suggestions too!

I'm using size 92 thread to make some military spec bags, etc. but the theard I got seems to sloughing off this white film. Anyone have ideas on how to stop it or why the thread is doing this?

the thread is black coming off the spool, but after going through the machine and fabric, it has this white film. See below:

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / discontinued yarn.... on: December 30, 2010 05:12:01 PM
I had 4 balls of this awesome yarn, and I THOUGHT I had enough to make a sweater but alas I do not. Does anyone have a good resource for discontinued stock?

I'm looking for Lion Brand Jiffy in color 305 "Denver"

Well I just completed  Hitsugaya today!!
It took me 5 months stitching time!!
Happy to have him done!! Smiley


HOLY SMOKES!! that is awesome! I love Toushiro but Renji is one of my all time favorites! I named this little one Renji in his honor:


He's 8 months old now and his face lines are WAY more prominent which makes his name more appropriate.

Ya'll are amazing by the way! I love these projects, but I have not the patience they require.
