After some trials and errors I finally figured out how to load the bobbin and the top thread.What I did not realize at the beginning was that my manual is for two different style of sewing machines.Mine is the last one that they talk about when giving directions.I even read the manual last night like a “Big-ol Nerd”.It actually worked out being good because mine pretty much does everything by itself.So, after learning how to do it the HARD way I got to learn how to do it the EASY way!I usually make everything that should be easy harder, so today was pretty much the norm.
One of my favorite parts of my sewing machine is that it has “Speed Control”.I bet my mom wished that she had that on her machine when she was trying to teach me to sew.All I had to do was put the machine on slow and even if I put "the pedal to the medal”, I was still going “Myrtle Turtle” slow.Here is the finished product and the class product:
Not bad for the first time.
I did learn that I need practice on cutting fabric in a straight line, and sewing in a straight line, and I think that I am going to get a lot of practice on the next project.
I am really excited about this project because I currently do not have napkins,I know I should be embarrassed.I am going to be making 16 napkins, so it might take a while to finish them. Wish me luck!
