Okie,I'm probably going to sound like a complet idiot and as you can tell I'm totally new. I'm kind of embarrassed to ask -.-

But, Every time I go to fold over and sew the edge of my fabric my sewing machine eats it. What am I doing wrong? T_T"

What kind of fabric are you using? Where are the bobbin and top threads when you start sewing.  Where is the beginning edge of the fabric when you start?

If you have pics of when you first start sewing it might help us understand what's going on.  An after picture of the eaten fabric might help too.

The only dumb question is the one not asked.

What would you get if you crossed a goat and a sheep?
An animal that eats tin cans and gives back steel wool.
