1221  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / How to sew with difficult fabrics? on: August 07, 2006 02:11:38 PM
I just started sewing and love it love it love it!!!  My daughter loves those fuzzy chenille like pillows that are all fuzzy and soft and cushie Smiley I don't want to pay 20 dollars for a 8 inch square pillow. So I decided to buy the fabric! :::dundudun:: And the hell begins. I decided to cut the pillow out.  Lil' fuzzies were flying everywhere! It lost so many fuzzies that I swear it now has bald spots......... LOL And then I try to sew it together... (pink fuzzies still flying everywhere).... And my machine is having a very difficult go at it...... I think maybe now I know why they charge 20 dollars for it LMAO... Anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on a better experience with this fabric next time?

I live in Athens, which is in northeast Georgia. Not sure what zone though??? We get moderate amounts of rain usually but right now we are going through a semi drought due to strict watering bans I can only water on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. Which should be plenty for most plants (I think). The holly bush under the large window will have to stay unfortunately. We looked at digging it up this weekend and the roots are HUGE and run under the sidewalk/driveway and house.Thanks in advance for all suggestions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I Totally second the idea of the SINGER store!  If you can muster up the motsy haul the machine in so they can get the detailed info they need and let them service it, as it is probably overdue to be serviced Smiley Kill two birds with one stone.  Whilst looking it over and servicing they can let you know about the feet that are compatible and if they are still sold and if not good ideas of where to find them! I LOVE SINGERS!!!! My only prob is finding good singer sewing classes, as I am a newbie, and need to figure out many things. Good Luck Smiley Cheesy

 Grin So here goes, I have a wonderful house with lots of 'yardage' Cheesy I am a sewer too Smiley.  My front yard is pretty plain at this point it has a bed under the kitchen windows, which is full of holly bushes. (I am okay with that) And then I have a bed under my large living room window, this bed will be empty as soon as I move the Holly bush (unless anyone thinks it should stay) I have a black thumb,but am trying to learn how to get a green one. Cheesy We are on a corner lot located in a downtown area with a lot of traffic and I want it to look stunning.  Any suggestions? The size is about 30 x 60 and empty except for a large oak tree on the right end kinda in the middle of that end Smiley Sorry details are so confusing but I couldn't get my pics to upload.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate. Also, I am very crafty, I just lack the originality part here lately for some reason................ Thanks again!!!!


  This is near my kitchen windows.... and my bare sidewalks....



This is the flower bed that I was speaking of demolishing to build a tranquility pond.... Whaddya think?


This is my front door and my large living room window Cheesy I would like to do something with both but I am not sure what.......

OKAY............... SO all suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!

1229  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Can someone help me? I have a Singer sewing machine and am having problems with on: August 03, 2006 04:06:26 PM
I have a Singer sewing machine and am having problems with my overlock stitch (the zig zag one). I am new to sewing and am trying to learn the hard way lol  Grin Anyway.... when I use the overlock stitch the fabric it is zigzaging over puckers... in other words the fabric is puckering under the stitch.  I believe I am using the right needle (it the one marked for medium weights) I am trying to sew some fabric that is similar in weight to the pillowcase type fabrics you can buy from walmart.  Any tips or suggestions would be tremendously appreciated. Smiley Thanks ahead of time.
