Anywho I wouldn't recomend a handheld machine either. However if you do buy a cheep machine like the one ghile mentioned read the reviews! I bought one which I love but it can't sew anything thicker than t-shirt fabric.
Those types of machines are typically made with plastic insides so they break easy. It's worth the money in the long run to invest in a machine. You never know what you'll need it for.
I've made costumes, Clothing, Dresses, toys, etc. I plan to make curtains for my bedroom and kitchen!
The money I've saved making stuff for christmas has more than made up the cost of the machine.
Jsut read your reviews and don't rush into anything.

Ha!  Taking up sewing to save money!   Grin  My fabric/sewing/doll/yarn addiction is so great it requires an entire extra room.  But, as addictions go, it's cheaper than crack.   Wink

My first machine was a hand-me-down.  My second machine was a $200 Singer.  My current is a $800 Futura embroidery machine, with the thought to get another machine so I could have an embroidery machine set up full time...  No, it doesn't get cheaper...
I didn't take it up to save money originally! lol. But I really do save a lot in the long run. I've fixed many pairs of pants which saves 14.00 or more per pair. (mostly hubbys.) I'll buy clothing at the thrift store and alter it to fit, I buy clothing for fabric, and purchase from the dollar rack and remnants bins. I'm a very frugal/thrifty person. so for me yep it saves me money.
My spender is yarn. I can't use many real wool yarns but ooh if it's on sale I"ll buy it. even if it's the last skein left and only 30 yards. (what can you do with that? I mean come on!)
I have managed to save us about 350 dollars each year for christmas and at least 20-30 per birthday. I have 4 siblings (soon to be 5) 2 Sibling in laws, 3 grandparents, not to mention all the cousins!  Shocked So many cousins!
YEah and it's all thanks to craftster! That FOC is so worth it.

this year I can add the poppets to my birthday present list. I love this forum!

The LOTR swap was posted in the ideas board, but got buried with no replies.

Aww, it's too bad you're not in Michigan! I have a machine I'm giving away! You can normally find them at local thrift stores for local missions or like the salvation army. I've bought two that way, the first only cost me 10 bux and came with everything, the one I just got was 25 and came with like... 40 different decorative stitches. They're great- minor maintenance and major workhorses. Tongue I plan to get the sculpting and jointing done on dolly this week so maybe piccys soon of my puppy poppet!

That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all

I've got a Brother, it's held up well and yep, saved me money, lol! Of course Hubb doesn't see the stash of fabric as me saving money.........hehe. But at Christmas he's always singing its praises. ^-~

Oooh! Love that fabric ^-^ What a neat poppet she's going to be. Can't wait to see her finished.

SHE's FINALLY DONE!  Whew! This one was a job and a half,  (3 heads, 2 torsos...)  but I'm pretty proud of her in the end.

Here's the link to her thread, and a teaser pic:

I was meaning to ask earlier....
Didn't you make the raccoon poppet out of felt? How did it go? I saw some felt at jo-anns over the weekend and loved the color but hesitated to get it because the only thing I could think of to make with it was a poppet! lol.

This is the fabric and yarn combination I got.  I'm not too sure about the yarn.  Undecided
