we had numerous trials with the bobbin thread running out, the needle breaking, the fabric getting jammed, and the stitch skipping. mom kept her patience and worked with the machine to get everything properly working. after many hours of effort mommy and i had come up with a dozen uniquely crafted burp cloths.
some of the stitches are crooked, some have stitches that are skipped, some of the fabric is off center, and we have no idea how they will hold up in the washing machine. they may not be exactly perfect, but they were hand made with love and i would not trade them for anything.
