Saturday night was the time to tackle the huge pile of fleece headbands. I had 24 prepped, the raw edges turned and handstitched closed and ready for the Velcro strips. I set those up assembly line style and zipped through them.
The next batch of 24 needed the raw ends stitched and I opted to do them on the machine. I was on the 24th one when my needle suddenly bent - WHAT??!! I knew what that meant - linty build up. DANG! The assembly line screeched to a halt.
This is what I found when I opened up the bobbin area. A little hard to see but all the blue grey fuzziness is fleece lint. WOW - that's a lot of lint for the short time I was stitching.
And it was worse when I went digging around.
I'll have to be extra vigilant while I'm working on this project. 48 down, 96 to go. sigh.
I NEED to get these done *BEFORE* Thanksgiving if I can. Fingers Crossed!! Evenings next week will be busy to say the least.
