I just finished the cutest little purse I have ever made! I can’t show it yet, but I am so excited about it. It ‘s for a little girl. I keep it on my arm while I am walking through my house and looking in the mirror! So darn cute, you will see !
All the last week I stitched bags and now I am writing tips for you ! Practicing is the best teacher!
While I was stitching one of the bags I heard a strange noise, as if the needle hits something. I removed the needle plate and I saw that the needle hits the hook and I can’t sew anymore.
At first I was scared and I thought that I have to call my mechanic to repair the machine. After I calmed down I changed the needle, the noise disappeared and I could sew again.
The reason of this issue was the bent needle. While stitching through thick fabrics the needle could bend. The same thing could happen while stitching over pins (I have this bad habit).
So, even if a sewing machine can stitch but it is too noisy or there is an unusual noise while stitching, maybe the machine is screaming to us: Change the needle!!
I must admit, since I can’t cross the street and buy some needles, I do that only it is absolutely necessary !
I can’t finished a post without some pictures ( wow, who would read a post without pictures??).
So, please forget about my mistakes in English and look at the flowers I made for my bags…
Wow, this flower is nice but my hand stitching is just pathetic…
