Project Runway-Like Task!

Okay, now I've been working slowly, very slowly, on Sydney's Halloween costume. Now, with four days left to go, I'm almost in Project Runway mode. I've got to get on the stick and sew, sew, sew! The sewing machine I'm using, which is quite old and abused, has now decided to stop back stitching all together. It needs maintenance for sure, but I don't have the time. This could be a disaster, folks. :) I just keep least she'll have a dress and wings!

After this, I'm taking that thing apart! I know I'd use it more often if this machine weren't so persnickety! With the economy as it is, I've held off purchasing a new one, but maybe I should. What do you think? Refurbish the old one or pitch it for a new one? I'd like to start doing my own alterations to save us a ton of money. It almost seems like it would be a huge savings for me to just invest in my own, but maybe I just making excuses to buy a new one.

I say if you're going to use it, go for it!

You are amazing! I would not know the first thing about sewing, much less using a machine at all. Can't wait to see the pics of the final product :)
