Thanks so much for the help. Pictures soon.

Any ideas? It is interesting that nearly all of the problems with long arm machines are Tin Lizzie. I hope to finish this

cut main fabric 6 1/2 x 5 1/2, lining 7 1/2 x 5 1/2
you need two pieces of fabric, one main piece and one for the lining
sew 1/4 inch seam along both ends of the 5 1/2 sides, right sides together
turn right sides out and press so that
