DYI Project #2

The inner pocket is installed! I am glad with the final result. My DH is running a lot of projects in Africa and I managed to have Africa at the top.

I liked working on something different than garments so having still my sewing machine set up with heavy duty threads I decided to make a cover for a portable printer for him as well.

This time I decided to use a fabric with all Air Mail envelopes printed on it.
After measuring and drawing the pattern I cut all the pieces from the fabric.

I used a flannel blanket as underlining for protection. I was so glad that my sewing machine was doing so good with this all thick fabric …but you know this proverb:

Do no praise the day before sunset….

I have just finished attaching a pocket for a charger and a cable when it refused to work.

The needle did not come up, the thread was twisted around the bobbing and I have a (fortunately) small hole in the fabric now. The needle broken as well eventually.

I have changed needle few times, re-threaded the sewing machine many, many times, corrected the bobbing, clean up the bobbing – NO WAY – NO MORE SEWING!

DYI project #2 has to wait.

Meantime I have prepared the patterns for the Burda retro top 134 – this has to wait as well.

I will cut the pattern from the fabric and make all things by hand as far as I can. I hope till this time my machine will be repaired.

    1. I hate it as well… I new that sooner or later I will have to bring it for check but not now … I hot it will be possible to repair it within my budget. Other I will buy either my dream Bernina 580 or old Singer with foot pedal.

    1. I was in tears … it is for the third time. I have busy week so maybe I would not be able to sew at all – but that the broken sewing machine is a reason for this – I hate this. Fortunately I have some hand sewing to do – finishing skirt. And I can cut out other garments.
