Don’s jeans had to be fixed! I taught myself how to use the darning stitch on the sewing machine.
However I did have a few other minor problems.
I didn’t wind the bobbin correctly. Of course the thread on the underside (bobbin side) of the fabric got all knotted up and I had to fix that. I taught myself how to remove and reinstall the throat plate and the bobbin case.
Then the needle broke. You can’t use regular needles for sewing certain types of jeans. I inserted a “jeans” needle.
The red line points to the darning. The black arrow points to where I had to sew the loop to the jeans. (Click on the thumbnail to enlarge the photo)
Don was impressed. He said, “THANK YOU”! and “I really appreciate what you did.”
