Yes, it certainly does make sense! And, your bags are adorable. I thought this project would be a good change from making quilts. I've enjoyed the process, but not the bulkiness issue. Thanks for your input.

Yes, those old metal machines are real 'work horses'. I had a Kenmore(with cams).

Oh, I will try that. I know I have one in my sewing drawer somewhere. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yes, thank you. The kit came with the instructions for Pellon 987F.

Here's a tutorial on how to use a jeans jack. http://shesasewingmachinemechanic.bl...h?q=jeans+jack You can use a Bernina "height compensation tool," which are about $1.50. Or fold some thin cardboard.

Borrow a Featherweight. My Mom used mine to sew a suede (deerhide) coat for my Dad.
