My First Projects – Crayon Roll

Crayon Roll

To get used to my new machine and sewing in general I practiced on some scrap fabric but figured the best way to get to know the machine was to just start working on projects.  So that is what I did.

My first project was a crayon roll from  I made the crayon roll with the Kenmore and it was much easier to make with the new machine.  So that made me happy about my purchase.  It did take a little while to get used to the backstitch button because it goes one more stitch forward after you hit the button, but now that I know that, it’s easier to use.

I forgot to take pictures of the very first one I made with the machine before I gave it to my friend for her daughter.  But my second one turned out much better anyway.  I got the hang of the backstitch and my husband and I decided after I had finished the crayon roll that we would try out the alphabet and put our last name on it.  So it does go through all of the fabric but it still looks excellent!

So far I love my machine!

My project was on the weekly project roundup posted here.
