Let this be a lesson to you, sewing can be dangerous. I don’t know if you can tell, because I spared you the bloody scene, but somehow my finger came between the sewing needle and the fabric tonight. I just noticed that I have a matching hole on the backside of my finger. That’s right, the needle went straight on through the tip of my finger. Thank goodness for fingernails, at least it slowed the impact so I didn’t end up sewing myself to my project!
My sympathies to you! I’ve never understood how that happens, but I did the same thing to my thumb a few years back. I don’t remember it hurting very long, so hopefully you’ll be back in business soon!
I did that ALL of the time with my grandma’s old Singer. I had to make Gracie an apron for a play a few years back…thing was spotted with blood. Whatcha making?
Youch! I think one of the reasons I don’t sew very often is because of the unspoken fear of sewing through my finger . . .
Dude! Danger! I hope I never do that to myself. Though now that I know it is possible, I probably will.
How in the world does that happen? Glad you are okay though, yikes! The thought of it piercing your whole finger is scary!
That is frightening. I’m glad your finger is okay!
I have always feared that happening to me. Hope it feels better soon.
Maybe you should go get some roller blading gear for safety.
I have done that too, hurts like a bitch!
Yikes! I bet that hurts like crazy. Speedy recovery!
I did the same thing years ago. I couldn’t get the needle out myself. I ran out to have my husband do it, but I fainted before he was able to get it out!
Hope you are better!
Oh my gosh! You poor thing!
I am definitely going to watch out for that… I didn’t know that it was possible to do that.
Kiss to make it better! mwah
how the HE…SERIOUSLY? I had no IDEA that was even POSSIBLE!
(now a tad scared to touch my machine)
holy hell, that’s awful. I’ve actually done that before myself.
