I bought this machine

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00365E43U/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I am scared I need to return it now because it might be to small for the projects I want to do.
Like teddybears and monster bears and dresses
Do i need to return it or will this work?

I have not used this machine or any like it but I would think that if you are going to be doing the kind of sewing projects you described, this will not be enough machine for you.

Return.
If money is a concern do you have a local sewing machine store/ repair shop? I know my local store sells refurbished machines for under $100. These machines are older and much better then what you could buy at Walmart for the same cost.

I know this post is old but you can find good deals on sewing machine on Craigslist from time to time (check prices so you don't get taken) or even free on Freecycle. That's where I found my Singer Merritt 2404. It can with everything except the manual, which I found for free on the internets. Nice machine.
