Judging from the folds, I'd say your waist is too tight. Seems the whole back part of the dress is resting on the small of your back. AND you have "pulling folds" from the sides to the zipper at your back.
If you can, let some fabric out of the seam allowances. Maybe the dress will then fall a bit down and smoothen your problems.

Silver would certainly be better. Please, no holes, it's such a beautiful jeans. Well done!

Timing wrong? The needle has to be at an exact point at a certain stage. Not that I know which one that could be. Nor if you can handle that yourself. But if you say it's jamming the bobbin... well, I'd consult a technician.

Your bobbin is the wrong way round.
The little latch is supposed to be at the 12-o-clock-position. Did you put the bobbin the right way in? Holding it in hand, open side facing you, the thread will run counterclockwise ! You pull it into the bobbin-"holder", through the slit...

Sorry, I'm wrong. Yet another different way to correctly thread this kind of bobbin.
Just have a look here, it's page 13:

Size: ca. 7 cm square. Tacked the canvas to a small piece of cardboard and used a selfmade pattern.
Now I don't know what to do with them...

I don't have a bridge, but I do own a troll! If that's nothing...
Meet the troll:

Oh no! The flash scared him, he tries to get away!

He's just 6 cm tall, from feet to the tips of his grass hair. I gave him a glittery finish using embossing powder. After all, he's made from stone - or was it Fimo?

Hey, that's a great idea.

Mind if I throw in some "buts"?
I sew a lot, and I found you don't need a lot of space in front of your machine, rather in the back and to the left; when you sew a lot of fabric you can hold it in your lap, but after passing under the needle it has to pile up somewhere. Judging by your fabrics I'd say you're more into patchwork and small things, but even so I fear your makeshift-slideout won't hold to well the weight of your machine, even more so when going full speed. So I'd invest in a larger shelf, even coming out a bit, but properly installed and secured.

If you like you could also add a threadholder in the back, over your machine - just a lot of pegs on a board, to slide on the spools. Makes an interesting, colorful addition too. Smiley

The same as snake eyes.

Looks frightening good.

Totally loving this, not in the least because I recognise some of that paper. I remember buying some craft paper in Aldi Sud, and it looks a lot like yours Wink.
You're totally right! It's from Aldi. I've cut it into A6 Cards. But next year, I'll first print the text directly to the paper, then cutting it. I've lost waaay too much of that lovely print while glueing the text paper onto.
