To my surprise my sister gave me a sewing machine this past Christmas [thanks Marie!]. I was so excited and thrilled to get one. For someone like me, this was a really great present. It's been a few months since I got this beaut, and I just recently FINALLY used it.
I've been using my Mama's vintage sewing machine. You know, the one that is attached to a table, and has a leaf that opens and closes so you can actually hide the sewing machine [I'll have to take a picture of it one day]. After many years of using that one, this new one took a while to get used to. Yes, I actually HAD TO read the manual. There's still a few things to read about, but I'll get to it when I get to it. So far this machine is simple and effective, and will get me to a new level of craftiness! I can't wait to make things with it...maybe finally sewing over my hand sewn stitches on my curtains...or make some new products for my etsy shop...or refashion some thrift finds..or even make new fashion accessories similar to the ones that I drool over on magazines. The possibilities are endless!! I plan on making something with this new toy very soon.
