This week I was a little adventurous with my sewing machine and searched on YouTube for something easy I could make with what I had. I found this tutorial for a Easy Zipper Pouch from Melly Sews and since I had this random zipper in my craft shelf, I started watching it to see if I liked it enough to try it out. It became an adventure of learning experiences mashallah.
Then I came to the other side of the zipper. I don't know what went wrong there, I really don't. I hand-cranked over the zipper and as I was doing that, I think my needle must have hit the zipper teeth because it REALLY started to make that funny noise again. And when I tried sewing with the foot controller, it made a horrible screeching sort of noise and I was like, nope, I am not going to continue sewing with the foot and I just hand-cranked the rest of the way. Sunhanallah. By the time I got to the end of where I was sewing, my right hand was hurting so much, I was like okay, I going to try it out one more time before I tell my Grandma. It started to sew, but suuuuppppeeeerrr slow. I was almost finished by then, I just had to cut the thread and then turn the fabric and then sew the hole closed. I sewed the hole closed with the sewing machine and I started out using the foot controller, and then it made that noise again and I just hand cranked it the rest of the way.
But you know what was the strangest thing? When my Grandma came over to take a look a few days later, it was sewing fine alhamduillah. I thought that it was just some weird temporary problem that happened and it was fine. I got really happy and started to prepare for another project. I started sewing and it was going really slow. Hmm, okay. Then it made that scratchy noise and I was like okay, that's it. I am putting this machine away and taking it to get repaired, which hasn't happened yet, because I am slightly procrastinating because I don't want to go outside and also I had been going out to iftars, and I just never asked to make a pit stop.
