summer sewing - one down

Number 2 from my summer sewing list is completed:

Sewing the wallets has been fun, but I've had lots of trouble with topstitching around the edges (the machine "eating" the fabric, "birds nests" forming). I'd be grateful for any tips on how to avoid these problems.

  1. They are looking lovely. Try a different needle and a total rethreading of your machine for the birds nests. Also sometimes when they happen I just hold the thread ends to start and start a little along the seam so that there is a bit of fabric under the feed dogs to start.
