My dear husband made a little convertible sewing table for my Mother's old Singer 99. I've had my grandmother's treadle machine base for many years. When I got it, there was no top on it and it was a rusty mess. I took it all apart and cleaned it and repainted it and reassembled it and made a table top for it. It sat in my dining room in my previous home for about 15 years. Back then, husband made a greenhouse of old antique windows that sat on the treadle machine tabletop, and I kept plants in it.
When we moved to this house over three years ago, I sat the table in my morning room with one big plant on it. I wanted a place here on the first floor to set up a sewing machine sometimes, so my wonderful husband used the old table top already on the treadle base, and cut out part of it so my antique Singer 99 sewing machine would sit down into it.
I had bee at my house on Valentine's Day, so I made my bee friends little lovebug pin cushions that I saw on Pinterest. I like how they turned out!
I love the cork fabric but it was the SLOTH fabric that sucked me in...
Making the purse was not hard, but sewing the thick cork fabric when it was doubled was tedious.
The purse directions were well written and the designer has a photo tutorial on her website, as well.
I had three quilt tops draped across The Queen Mother, aka my Handiquilter 16 Sit-Down Machine, since before Christmas. I'm happy to say, they are all quilted and bound and labeled!! I'll share them next time!!
Yogi is plodding along! He is almost completely deaf and has about 25% of his vision left. He sleeps allot and is on several medications. He'll be 16 in a month! He still looks like a puppy, though!! He just moves a bit slower!
So, what have you been sewing on lately?
