I am trying to cut out the quilt for pattern and 3795 and I'm confused why I need to put price 2 on the fold line


Cannot see the pattern you are describing, but there is a very good reason why you need to double the fabric.

Because that piece needs to be doubled. If you cut out only one piece, you would only have half of what is needed. If you cut 2 separate pieces, that means you would have to sew a seam down the middle (plus, once you've sewn a seam, that particular piece will be too small since you reduced the size by taking two seams-width out of it).

By way of example, look at the back of your blouse. It is one solid piece from underarm to the other underarm. One side is the mirror image of the other side, with the centerline down the middle of your back. The pattern companies save paper by giving you only half the pattern, and you accomplish making a full piece by placing the pattern's center line on the fold of the fabric. When you've cut out the fabric and open it up, you have one "complete" piece.

I have a white 742 sewing machine and want to know if I can sew blue jeans or leather on it. How high will the presser foot raise for a thickness


If you have a machine similar to the one shown in this video, your machine can most certainly sew denim. (You may need to go slowly and use a heavy needle, and if the machine is struggling to stitch through the heavy fabric, give it a little assist by turning the handwheel.)
NICE CONVERTIBLE WHITE 742 CONVERTIBLE SEWING MACHINE

It may be older, but this is a nice mechanical machine and should be able to do a lot more sewing than the newer machines you find now days. Just be sure to use a fresh, good quality sewing machine oil and oil it frequently (1-2 drops each spot) every time you start a new project, or at least every 6 months when not in use. (Old oil will tend to dry out and turn to glue over a period of time.) Do NOT oil the belts or any plastic/synthetic parts. But hitting every place that metal rubs on metal. Don't forget to do the mechanism around the feed dogs, etc.

When you get to a thick seam, make a "booster" for your presser foot that will raise the back of the presser foot to help keep it level while going over the heavy seam.

On my bobbin side of the materal after i sew its just tons of thread on that side and the stitch is not tight


Loose on bottom indicates trouble with top tension. Re thread your machine with the presser foot UP. sew a test seam. If you still have problems adjust the top tension. sew a test seam. If you still have problems clean between the tension discs with some sturdy fabric and unwaxed dental floss. Sew another test seam.

Still problems? Wind the top tension tight then back off 1/4 turns until the seam is balanced.

How do I sew Elastic waistband with Husqvarna Viking 910 Surger


I am assuming this is a simple stretch waist band with elastic about 2cm wide attached to a skirt or trousers. You need to measure your wist and cut elastic that length plus 2cm. Then join the two ends by overlapping them 2cm and zig zagging the elastic together with regular sewing machine. Now mark the elastic in quarters, ie hold it flat with the join in the middle and mark each edge with chalk or a fabric removable marker. Then put the marks together and mark the edges again so you have 4 marks equally spaced. Now do this for your garment too. It may be bigger in back so mark front and back, then half this to find the side quarters. Put elastic on inside of garment against raw edge and pin the quarter marks on elastic and garment together. Set up overlocker for 4 thread wide seam. Test seam and adjust tensions if necessary. Now you need to serge the edge of the fabric and elastic together, trimming the fabric but not cutting the elastic and stretch the elastic to fit the garment as you stitch. Elastic on top, fabric right side down underneath. Take out pins before you get near them! Start by lifting the front of the presser foot with your finger and placing fabric and elastic under, then start stitching on and straighten up once the seam is onto the elastic. Dont lift the pressure foot, you just stitch, stop, stretch the elastic to the fullness of the fabric, hold it and seam forward a few inches, then stop and repeat the process. Once right round go over your starting point, then turn and serge off the fabric edge and chain off. Cut, pull the chain to pull it flat and tie a hald hitch in it right up close to fabric. Now turn the elastic band to the inside of the garment. You need to secure it. Usually a straight stitch just onto the lower edge of the elastic with sewing machine from outside.

My needle breaks 2 in a row


Don't pull your fabric as you seam as this is a sure fire way to break needles.

Also, make sure you have got the right foot on it for the stitch sequence it is sewing. For example, don't use a foot with a little hole in it when doing a zig zag as the needle will strike the foot. The general purpose clear plastic foot is usually a good one for most stitching.

If you are trying to sew something pretty heavy then this can cause breakages too as the machine may struggle to pierce through 6 layers of denim when you cross another seam. For example, hemming jeans, when you stitch over the side seams, your machine is trying to pierce probably 7 layers, the leg, plus the felled seam turned twice. It will struggle. You can help it by using a "Jeans-a-jig" a little plastic device you hold in front to get the foot up over the lump and give it grip. But take it really slow and sew one stitch at a time.

I have a question on my Kenmore sewing machine style 385.17626 When I start sewing, after a couple of stitches it starts to bunch up and not feed through. It's a tangled mess of thread and fabric. I'm...


Try using a double strip of tissue paper 1 1/2 x5/8 inch placing it about 3/4 inch under edge of fabric and middle of seam allowance. Start stitching on the tissue paper and continue onto the fabric to the end of seam. After that remove the tissue. You can also hold both threads and slightly pull them when you first begin the seam to help them reach the back feed dogs.
