Altered Jeans with Matching Shirts & a Sad Story

They are really cheesin' it up, huh?

Anyways, here are both pairs of jeans, and the matching shirts. The letters on the shirts were just heat and bond. I didn't sew anything on them.

Now for the sad story, my sewing machine is dieing a slow and painful death. I have no idea what may be going on, but I have so many things I want to do and she is letting me down. I don't know if it's fixable or if I should just go buy a new machine. My sewing skills are limited, so I thing the $100 Singer is all I'd need. If you have sewing experience, and think you might could help me figure out what's wrong, please let me know! I don't have a manual. . . this is my grandmother's machine.

So, Wednesday will be my 100th post! I was hoping for a giveaway, but it will all depend on my sewing machine. I was working on a little somethin'-somethin' for a giveaway!

My machine is giving me grief lately, too. I think it may need cleaning or oiling?? Maybe you can go that direction first...
Cute outfits!! Cute girls!!

I squirted oil everywhere I could squirt, and it made no difference :(
