    Used two paper towels as stabilizer, worked pretty good! The feet and tusks got a little misaligned I think. I need better scissors too. It is about the size of a quarter, not that that really helps people from outside the USA. I think it is pretty cute. I plan on using it on something for my soon to be niece, due date May 2. I really need to finish her quilt too. Too bad I have a new distraction.

    I never would have thought of using paper towels as a stabilizer. I have just bought a brother embroidery machine but haven't had time to use it yet.:thumbdown: to busy cleaning up all the dust and soot that came into my craft room when they cleared the house away. I had planned on making a start today but after seeing all the mess I decided it would be better to get cleaned up first so it wouldn't get into my new machines. I have told DH to tell me next time he is going to make dust so I can cover everything in sheets.

    The paper towels were suggested by a lady on the other thread, coffee filters and used dryer sheets were also suggested at least for practice. I can sympathize litacats, I'm so glad I didn't have to wait until tomorrow! Hope you get to use your machine soon. I bought a used Brother 270D. I think I got a good deal, lots of thread was included. Thanks for the compliments!
