Hey peeps, hope you’re all well. Thought I would share a crafty tale with you. My hubby is a bit of a sewer, his dad was a tailor so he picked some skills up over the years. He has a couple of old sewing machines and I’d been saying for a while that I fancied having a go at sewing. Well he got a sewing machine off ebay for 99p – yes 99p and it was local so there was no shipping to pay either, it’s from 1967, is very lovely and works beautifully. Here it is
Then today I decided to really go for it! I found a tutorial on YouTube and made a handbag. I had some more off cuts, so I used 2 of my 50p pieces and a 25p brushed cotton pillowcase to line it. I had to unpick the lining a couple of times to go back and fix gaps in the stitching but it’s done now and I really like it. I think it’ll be great for holidays and might just make another one in a different colour! Here it is
So what do you think? I know I need more practise but I’m loving it!
