Your really good at making things, what lucky piggies you have :) How did you make the cuddle cup bed? I've been wanting to make one for ages, just have no idea where to start! Yours looks fab :)

and it is brilliant I would say get this one as it is soo smooth, i almost feel guilty for sending that one now i have used a good one even the £55 one from dunelm was pants compared to the jmb one

What kind of thickness will the JMB machine sew through (as in layers of fleece and wadding)?

Love your items btw. Have been thinking of making one of the cube houses for a while but have been put off because I only sew by hand.

On the cuddle cup's i double up the wadding so 4 layer's of wadding and two fleece and i have made 6 cups the fleece cube a hammock with wadding and i am still using the needle that was in the machine when i got it not blunt at all or struggled with any of it, it took about two and half to three hour's to make the cube with machine so it would be forever with out lol. it has lot's of feature's and stitche's that i don't know what they are for but i reccomend it as i am only learning too.

That cube-hidey house bed is amazing! How did you make it? I would absolutely love to know! I love making things for the ickle pigaloos :) I'm asking my family for fabrics for Christmas :) hehe :) My mom got on my case saying that I love my gpigs too much... What can we do?

Thankyou for those links. Most helpful.
I'm a machinest, used to make baby clothing for marks n sparks way back in the day. And was in a assembly line for Harrods and liberty shirts. But you know what. I ve had my fandango sewing machine for coming up 3 years. I knew it had loooooads of different stitches on it. But it wasnt until the other day that I made some cushion covers that I realised just how much it bloomin does. My 13 year old son pointed out that I should have read the manual that came with it and maybe I would have realised. hahahaha:x
