1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Help, my Singer is eating my fabric! on: May 20, 2008 02:37:08 PM
Yesterday my machine was working fine. Today it is not. At first, it was sucking the fabric down into the little hole behind the needle (not sure what it's called) after a couple of stitches. I opened the bobbin case and it looked like the main thread was getting wrapped around the bobbin. I rethreaded it and tried a different fabric--it took a little longer to suck in the thread, but was still doing it. I changed the thread and bobbin to ones I was using yesterday (two different colors--I had been just playing around for practice), when it was working fine, and sewed on the same fabric. Now it's not sucking the fabric in or getting the thread wrapped around the bobbin--it's just failing to move after a few stitches and the main thread is turning into a tangled mess on the bottom while the bobbin thread doesn't seem to be going through at all.

If it helps, it's a Singer 2010 and used to belong to my grandmother (I asked for a sewing machine for Christmas, and she wasn't using this one, so it was free!). I don't know how old it is.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Beginner's DPN project? on: January 26, 2007 01:33:01 PM
I'm a fairly new knitter, but I really want to learn to use DPNs in order to be able to make Knitty's Knucks (preferably before the weather gets warm enough for me to want to wear them, which probably won't be until April so I should have plenty of time). Does anyone have any suggestions? One thing: I don't particularly want to knit socks. I already have lots of socks, and have fairly specific taste in them and don't think I'd be able to make socks I really like  Tongue But other round things are fair game!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Stripy legwarmers! on: January 25, 2007 04:22:04 PM
AKA the most boring recon ever  Wink Seriously... cut off sleeves, sew in elastic, wear. I love 'em!

Sorry about the blurry mirror picture... I couldn't find a place to set up the camera for the self-timer. (The red and grey is the legwarmers... the blue and white is my socks.)

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Nuala on: October 30, 2006 08:57:37 PM
Hi everyone! This is my first project post at Craftster  Grin Here is my Halloween costume. It is Nuala from the Sandman series by Neil Gaiman. I made the cloak from scratch and with some assistance by a sewing machine (the fabric frays a lot so I had to finish the edges--otherwise I probably wouldn't have bothered, since the sewing machine is at home and I'm at college), but partially by hand. The dress has a white T-shirt as the base, but the skirt and the strings across the front are from scratch. The skirt isn't hemmed, but I don't really have time to finish it (Halloween is tomorrow!) and it doesn't seem like it will fray.

This is the first project I've sewed in a really long time, so it's not perfect... but I'm really happy with it!
