    I am taking a class this Friday evening at my LQS, to learn to make a Bow Tucks. Do you think my Featherweight can do this project, or should I take a different machine? I have another machine to go with, but can the Featherweight do this bag?

    I would imagine all you need is to straight stitch, so a featherweight I would think should be sufficient

    Will the Featherweight sew through a lot of layers including the fusible fleece? Like 2 layers of fleece and two of fabric? If so it should work just fine it is an easy pattern just pretty thick in spots.

    I made my bag on my featherweight and had no problems, even through all the layers. The handles if I remember right, you have about 8 layers and there were still no problems, so don't worry, she's a tough little machine and she'll do whatever you want her to. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
