1  Thread has started getting caught in machine after months of successful use! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by queenorivers on: March 09, 2014 04:12:21 AM

As you can see, the upper thread has wrapped itself around that bar, catching the bobbin thread in the process - with every revolution of the upper thread it loops around the bar, tangling up. I visited John Lewis and the woman in the shop had a look at it, but it didn't cause her any problems and appeared to be 'fixed'. I used it successfully for one night, but as of today it's playing up again. The tension is correctly set and I ensured to thread it correctly as per the manual instructions. Is this a problem with the user (am I effing up?) or is it broken? Thanks!

2  An odd question in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by queenorivers on: June 06, 2011 07:06:48 PM
Hello! When there are pattern guides on printed magazines are they to scale? As in could i blow it up to the right measurements and print it without having to draw it out myself? Example:

Another thing you can do is make jogging bottom jeans, they're quite trendy here in the UK. You can cut the waistband off a pair of joggers, cut the waistbands off the jeans and sew it on? Ill get a pic.

You could also do the bottoms for the effect?

4  Pic heavy, two skirts and some trousers! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by queenorivers on: April 16, 2011 06:04:28 PM
Firstly I'm quite proud of this. It was meant to be a silly sort of thing that looks good, like if a child was let loose with some paint they'd make this. Making it into a skirt means theres no fuss/pleats/gathers etc to distract from the striking fabric. I love it! I painted it myself.

Secondly I found some darling fabric at my LFS, patchworkesque floral print. Makes me want to buy a bundle of FQs and make my own patchwork!

(Needs an iron)

And finally my slightly more structurally complicated pattern, pseudoharem floral trousers!

OH YEAH all of these are handsewn with needle and thread. I left my lead in my uni halls so that was fail :|

6  Orange Fun Hat! in Knitting: Completed Projects by queenorivers on: September 21, 2010 04:22:55 PM

Here are pictures of my nice hat! I knitted it to go with a scarf I've got, it was on straight 10mm needles sewn up at the back with pom poms and braids and tassels to add to the madness! I love it Smiley

8  Three individual Mittens in Knitting: Completed Projects by queenorivers on: August 29, 2010 06:30:58 PM
I mean that as well! I've just learned to knit in the round and well I keep running out of yarn so actually it's two mittens and one wristwarmer with a thumb.. Lol!

The one on the left is Noro Kureyon and I LOVE that yarn! Need to post pics of the hat I made too, the other two are random brands of DK I LOVE the black and pink one. If you didn't know there are dinosaurs on the right one.

9  Pompom stockinette scarf. in Knitting: Completed Projects by queenorivers on: July 30, 2010 09:11:55 AM
Before I start I wanna tell you about my big mistake. When I purl i put the needle in the correct place and wind the yarn in the wrong direction! Horror! I'll post a picture of this mistake:

On the bright yellowy coloured knots you can see it's crossed over.

But still I made a scarf with pompoms on the end and I really like it! More info on that is on my blog but here are the pics:

10  Ben's Thai fisherMAN pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by queenorivers on: July 10, 2010 03:35:06 PM
My boyfriend and me went to Amsterdam and he saw some pants in a market and wanted me to make him some similar so we bought some nice fabric in another dutch market and well.. Here they are.

Here is his ninja pose, which will shock and awe everyone.. Or so he'd like you to think.

What a ninja. What a goon!

Hope you like.
