LEARN TO SEW: CHECK!

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?

  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?

  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.
