Sewing Fail

So awhile back I had this BRILLIANT idea that I was going to sew Aubrey's clothes so that she could have tons of adorable outfits at a fraction of the cost. I got the patterns, the material, the sewing machine, I was ready to go. WRONG! Apparently sewing is easier said than done. DAMN!
I was having a smart day and decided I needed to practice on scrap material before I jumped right in. Good thing I was using my noggin. Something went way wrong and the thread broke. Yes, B.R.O.K.E. No, I don't know why. Of course, that could be because I had NO. IDEA. WHAT. I. WAS. DOING.
Think I might just file this one in the FAIL folder and find a seamstress. What am I going to do about the stuff I bought to sew burp rags and things for my cousin's baby?? Maybe I can do applique on the onesies...how do you do that???
**Side-note: my MIL thought it was such a great idea. She told me I could even make Ethan's clothes. Ummm, no. Frilly little girl outfits=cute, boys t-shirts=not so much.


  1. Thread breaks all the time. Don't give up! The machine was probably threaded wrong. Read the instructions for threading.

  2. The machine is a loaner and I don't have the instruction manual. I feel lost without it. I'm an instruction manual junkie.
    My MIL did say maybe the bobbin tension was too high. I just haven't messed with it again.
