After almost 4 years I had to lay my old sewing machine to rest. I literally wore the motor out which means I did a lot of sewing! I am proud of all of the projects we completed together. Especially considering I had never sewn a single stitch until I received that machine as a Christmas gift from my husband. Here are just a few of our greatest hits:
Master bedroom bedding
Riley's sleeping bag
Lots and lots of pillows
And my all-time favorite, Riley's clown costume. This costume is actually a pretty bad sewing job but everytime I see pictures of her in this outfit my heart melts! Hayes will definitely be a clown for Halloween in the near future.
When it came time to replace my old machine, I went with this recommendation. It is similar to my previous machine so I am hoping there won't be much of a learning curve and it is a little more heavy duty than my old one. Hopefully I won't burn the motor out of this one :) The machine has arrived and is still in her box but I am getting ready to pull her out. The first project on my list will be finishing the curtains in Hayes' nursery.
The back-ordered pink velvet finally arrived last week.
And I have big plans for Halloween costumes for the girls. We will see how it all works out. If those go well, I may even try to sew a few outfits for Hayes.
