New Toy

January 24, 2017

The Kenmore machine works!!!

It was so gung up that the handwheel did not even move the arm up and down.

It only needed to be cleaned and oiled, it was not dirty inside, i think it was just the old oil that got her stuck, I degreased and re-oiled it and it works like a charm! Very weird the way it threads itself to the side, all metal inside, no plastic anywhere! And the bobbin case and thread adjusters work fine too! It even adjusts the pressure of the foot on the fabric. Looks like it has been serviced in 2002.

Rainbow Pom-Pom Skirt

January 22, 2017

Just finished an hour long, or should I say an hour quick project with now pattern.

Used Lycra for the lining and a fold over stretch tulle fabric filled with sparkley small pom poms. The lining was gathered and sewn under a sequin elastic wide band. The folder over raw edges od the tulle were stitched on the side, then the waistline gathered and stitched with a zig zag over the front of the elastic band.
