                    Yeah but is your shawl and that really that detailed....on my new stuff I have just way too much stuff to be doing it by hand plus with the shiny materials Im using it would all fray and fall apart.There are some designs that are so tiny I am gonna have a hard time with that machine but I dance hard and like I said it would just fall apart...not that i'm not a good hand sewer cuz I am....I just dont think its a good idea for me.....I did hand sew everything back in the day...when I first started makin my stuff.

                        the first one i did not use a sewing machine but a lot of it came out stiff. then i tried again and it came out better. although i lost the second one to a michigan winter storm and i am left with the second one.

                          Sewing machine all the way!!
                          Well not all the way, I do all my own beadwork by hand!
                          So for what I can do with a machine I do, what I can do with my hands I do!

                          Does this make since to anyone else or am I just that outta it right now!?

                              I use a sewing machine whenever I can for my niece's outfits, but there are just some fine detailing that I would rather just do with my own hands. I wouldnt dare take a machine to it because it would ruin the detailing. But yeah, applique work and all that jazz is done by machine. But I did do my own first outfit completely by hand. That was a learning experience back when I was 16 *LOL* Gotten better at it over the years though.
