I bought this great pattern from Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio and I've been going nuts making these. They require about a yard of fabric for each side and I decided to use my Joann's 50% off coupon and use the wider nylon so it only took two yards for the sides. Then I splurged on the top!! I added a kitty, butterflies and next will be flower boxes. I also made one out of camouflage material which was cut to look 3D. No "real" door for this one, just overlap the front pieces a little bit.

This pattern just said buy me, and I thought these colors and patterns would go with nearly any decor she may choose. And I was lucky to find all of these on the $5.98 bolt ends table, too!

Either I am doing something wrong, or there is a fault with the mechanism, if you can call it that.

Does it need a new needle? That is usually the quickest easiest cheapest fix. Change the needle... some times we hit pins or sometimes people pull the material through the machine and the needle bends. Sometimes needles get dull? When was the last time it was changed?
Make sure the needle is in all the way
