Trade Off

I have a friend Amy, who is a sewing whiz. I wish I could machine sew. I have taken sewing lessons twice. Let's just say the bobbin hates me. The top of the stitches will be lovely, nice and even. The underside is just knots. I don't know what I do wrong. I have accepted that I can't use a sewing machine. I have a bunch of stamps I am selling though one of my Etsy stores. Amy has recently been bitten by the stamping bug. We decided to make a trade. I would trade her some stamps and knit her a scarf and she would sew me three project bags. She has wonderful fabric and I was so excited to get some new bags to put my projects in. Actually, I was only keeping one bag for me. Robyn got the other two as Christmas gifts (although a little late). I love the style of the bag. It fits over the wrist and is the perfect size for a ...well you know what I always make. Right?

Look at you with all of these posts!!!

LOVE the bag!! Are you sure you are threading your machine correctly?? Is the bobbin wound correctly? Have you had your machine cleaned and adjusted lately?? Maybe it is your machine and not you.
