Make-it-Mondays: The Set-up 2 - This Time it's Personal

Remember last week's sewing machine disaster? Well it's a good thing I posted about it because my mom reads my blog, and she's the one who bought the sewing machine, and she was like, "No bobbins?" Because there were supposed to be some in the box. 

Here are all the other things that were supposed to be included, but were not:

  • Buttonhole Foot
  • Button Sewing Foot
  • Pack of Needles
  • Bobbins (Class 15)
  • Thread Spool Cap
  • Darning Plate
  • L-Screwdriver
  • Seam Ripper/Lint Brush
Somebody tried to play me for a fool! And this gal don't suffer fools! 

So I marched myself back to my parent's house, got the receipt, and I exchanged the crap out of it! Got myself an identical machine - one that came with everything promised by the manufacturer! 

That's how I roll!

This morning, I got that sucker locked and loaded. 

And it was hard

I'll spare you the bitter details, but it was a long and frustrating process. Curse words were slung, booklets were hurled, and lots of thread was wasted. I read the manuals, looked at the diagrams, and was totally perplexed. Finally, I turned to the only logical source: YouTube. 

Until further notice, NORDIC SINGER is my new best friend. You can all resume your lives. 

Finally, the threads looked like this, and I was ready to play. 

The machine has twenty-seven programmed stitches, so I practiced a few.

Then I rewarded myself with Supernatural

Always dignified.
Now that I can use my sewing machine, my biggest problem is deciding which project to tackle first. The table runner? Hemming the prairie dress? The world is my oyster!

And Jared Padalenemecki is the pearl.


  1. best friend?!?!?! hey!!!!

    make me a blanket.
