First issue, I had to learn to use the SewQuick machine. From the look of it on the box it looked really simple, which was good because I have never sewed anything before. Well, I decided to try it out on a piece of fabric first instead of just trying to jump in to the project. The main issue I had with the SewQuick was the needle, it doesn't come up very high at all and I wasn't sure I could get it to work for the project. The fabric also was catching on the little tracks that move the fabric. Once I started using it for the project it worked just fine, so I'm guessing I just didn't have a big enough piece of fabric as a tester.
Second issue, I wanted to take step by step photos of my project, but my digital camera's flash decided to go out (Once again IF there is a company out there that would like me to review a Digital Camera that would be great for taking portrait as well as action shots of kids and animals, please contact me!). I took a few pictures using it, then found our other digital camera, the flash works on it, but it randomly shuts off by itself so its frustrating to use.
Third issue, I made one, and I turned the fabric the wrong direction, so the cuff is actually inside out... it looks a little funky, but will function.
Fourth issue, after I made the second one and was tying the knot with the needle threader I pulled too hard and broke the threader. I don't have another one and I can't figure out how to fix it... so when I finished sewing the cuff on the second one, I ran over the end seam in hopes it would stay, since I couldn't tie a knot like I did the first one.
Over all I think I did ok for my first time. I will definitely get better with future Baby Leg Warmers. Here are some photos from my sewing attempt, Enjoy:
