A reason to sew: accessories

When browsing for fabric online or at the store, there are so many amazing prints and textures to flip over. But reality strikes when you think “What the heck can I make with that!”

If you go nuts for a fabric, but it doesn’t quite cut it for a piece of clothing or such, think accessories. Totes are an easy sew, and they are great to add fashion pop and individuality to your wardrobe.

    I have owned three sewing machines with the front-loading bobbin. Whenever there was a jam (and there were many) the thread would wrap around the parts which held the bobbin in place. I had to put the machine on its side in order to easily access the bobbin case, open the hinges that hold the race and hook, clear the jam, and then re-assemble them. Top-loading bobbins seldom jam, and are easier to clear. In addition, you can easily see how much thread is left on the bobbin. Most all of your newer machines have the top-loading one.
