hunted interior


I'M BACK!!!  So the internet has been out all week & I have been going bananas.  It is not easy to get your blog fix on the iPhone only.  We have stayed busy though.  My mom has come into town for Easter & she has helped me check another goal off the list!  I have learned to sew on my 1941 Singer Sewing Machine!!!  Have I mastered it, no.  But I did make my daughter a dress... with no pattern.  So I consider this a success!  While I don't plan on signing up for Project Runway anytime soon, I am pretty pleased with what we have accomplished this week.

This will not be a tutorial, as I am still not sure if I could do it again by myself... But it is a step in the right direction.  If I could make a toddler dress, surely I can make a Pillow Cover... right?!?!

Here is the back...  Again, not too bad for a first attempt.

I was astonished with how smooth & quiet this machine was.  But more importantly for the designer in me, I cannot get over how stunning this machine is.  You will not find any machine as gorgeous as this one in stores today.  And for the functions I need, this vintage beauty is my perfect fit!

More posts to come!!!  How did we survive before the internet?

  1. Okay that is the CUTEST dress ever! What a lucky little girl! Where did you find the fabric? That sewing machine is a beauty!

  2. HAHA! Thanks Debbie. It was some clearance fabric from Hobby Lobby... I'll see if I still have a salvage edge with the name on it :) I wanted something kinda wonky so if I messed up it wouldn't be as noticeable! lol!

  3. I love the fabric choice, too! Now all you need is a cute pair of bloomers and she'll be all set. Easter dress?

  4. pillow covers will be a breeze, said your needy cousin.

  5. I just found your blog, and wanted you to know that I sew for my Etsy shop on my 1947 Singer Featherweight. Aren't they a dream? I love mine. I have it on my business cards.

  6. THAT was your first attempt?!?!? My first attempt was a tote bag...and it ended up being big enough for the green giant!!! Not much has changed since
