I've made two others one in red flocked satin and one in green velvet.  Its a great pattern.

This is the small one.

Thank you so much for the link!

I've been trying to figure out how to make an even smaller one of those on my own - and I just couldn't wrap my mind around it - so thank you for saving my brain the extra work!!

THis is a super easy pattern too, I think you could easily reduce the size.   Wink

I've had that problem before with my machine- I hope one of these troubleshooters works for you:
1. make sure the needle is all the way up in the clamp
2. sometimes machines are picky about how the bobbin thread is pulled through- refer to the manual that came with your machine
3. too thick/too many layers of fabric can cause a machine to spaz out
4. try not to pull the fabric too taught when sewing/ pull the fabric back faster than the feed dogs are moving it

Omigod!!  Crafting can be quite dangerous!  I"ve snapped many a neddle but mine usually get stuck in the fabric.  Everytime I've broken a needle it's because my fabric was too thick, which is surprising if you were using a satiny fabric.  I'd say bagfairy pretty well nailed the troubleshooters.
