I saw a video of a woman making a scarf. She put down one layer of solvy, strips of bias silk, another layer of solvy. She pinned it heavily and stitched a grid. Then she lowered the feed dogs and did some close free-motion stitching.
Looked great, so I gave it a try. What a grouchy project! The machine top thread broke every couple of minutes. I almost abandoned it.
But I persevered. It looks wonderful, but I would never want to re-live the five-six hours of making it. Too bad. Was I doing something wrong? I have lots more silk and would like to make more scarves if it were not so annoying.
Can anyone advise me? Please?
