Question about Singer 7462 Mechanical Sewing Machine
SOURCE: Desgin stitch out on Futura 250
It sounds as though the design is stitching but the machine is skipping stitches. If this is the case, be sure you hoop the tear away in the hoop with your fabric.Make sure the fabric is taut. Use a new needle and a good quality thread.If this doesn't solve your problem, try the design on a different type of fabric.

Some machines will start out by sewing a straight stitch all the way around the buttonhole area first and then will zigzag/satin stitch along the sides. Bar tacks will be the last stitches sewn - hope this helps!

Your threading might be the problem, follow the advise in your manual for your fabric. or go to singerco.com & see what they advise in your model or another one for tensions on satin. You may need a walking foot to do the job, You can take a scrap piece of fabric and try using tissue paper under your fabric to stop the slippage, then tear it away. We did that when I was learning to sew, and it worked. Good luck.

Look on page 46 of your manual and you will see the correct way to satin stitch. Also, you should use a stabilizer, like interfacing or good old fashioned gift tissue paper. If, you don't have your manual handy, download one for free at www.singerco.com and it will tell you how to clean and oil your machine, change your needle. Your machine should not be noisy, try placing it on a towel if you are on a hard surface. Good luck, it is not hard, you just need a little practice on some scrap material.
