The Beast/Hopefully Baby has Arrived!!!

Yey… Yey… so the Beast has arrived! I am calling it the beast at the moment, because it scares me slightly… 😮 🙂

The machine has 15 stitches, and a bundle of feet that I currently do not understand… 🙂 But I like it!

So in a previous post, I decided that my first project would be a pin cushion, makes sense noooo??? Unfortunately my delivery of stuffing (wadding?) has not arrived so I am pincushionless at the moment…

Image Mass of pins………………….

The first thing I did once the Beast was plugged in and threaded was attempt straight lines and play with the stitches (see my attempt below)

I don’t think I did too horrifically…. But then I am biased.. 🙂

So of course once I had played with the machine and scared myself silly by pressing too hard on the foot (WHOOPS)…. I wanted to MAKE something… Luckily the dried Lavender I ordered had arrived, sooooooo Lavender bags for my drawers (chest of drawers not underwear drawers 😉 )

Image Lots and lots of Lavender 🙂

Bag before turning the right way round and stuffing:

Once stuffed and topstitched sealed… bit wonky… whoops, I had a bit of difficulty with the final stitching with the lavender in the bag… 🙂

But overall happy with, so I have made 6 of these for my chest of drawers… Although boring fabric and I know the contrasting thread is a bit strange, I still love my first attempt 😀
