My Sewing Machine
My sewing machine has seen the light of day after over 20 years of inactivity - surprisingly it still works!
I've been wanting to try machine stitching on paper so gave it a go on this LO. Fortunately I was going for the "shabby chic" look (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!) as I am really out of practice at sewing in a straight line.
Cardstock is Bazzill, papers are by Cherry Arte (scraps from another LO), two fabric squares and photos from 1992 around the time of DS's 3rd b'day.
Along with the machine I found a load of unused patterns (charity bag fodder!) and lots of material left over from when I made myself two skirts (back in the early '80's), kitchen curtains from mid-80's and a shirt that I started making for OH (also in the '80's) - I don't think it will ever be finished now!
