Project #5: E-Textiles
Embroidery took the longest because of problems with the thread and bottom plate. The problem I kept having was that the threads would get trapped at the bottom. Turns out that the plate at the bottom was placed incorrectly where the scissors would trapping the thread and won’t let it loop through like normal. Once that was fixed, everything ran smoothly.
I actually enjoyed this project. This is definitely a project that allows for limitless possibilities but the troubleshooting was the hard part. Not knowing your way around the sewing machine and learning to use the proper foots and threads and tensions was a learning curve. Figuring out the problems with everything was the frustrating part but when everything works, it feels amazing. I definitely learned how to sew from this project and am no longer afraid of the sewing machine but it was definitely time consuming!
