New Old Sewing Machine

basically every project I am working on, I share with you here on my blog

and that tells you I have not been sewing in a loooong time

months have gone by without

but, I have a feeling that is going to change soon...


on a lucky thrift adventure with my friend

I found this beauty of a vintage sewing machine

super heavy, all steel

and isn't this just the perfect color and style

could you imagine my excitement when I saw it, haha

I must admit I have had it for a few weeks now

and still found no time to use it

but I will soon !

how great would it be to sew vintage sheets into beautiful cushion covers on this machine...

I know it still works, I tried that before I bought it

but other than that I have no idea what to expect

may be this weekend I will do some research on the web

and find some tips and tricks for this particular one

let the fun begin !


wishing you a lovely weekend too



  1. Wat is 'ie mooi!!!! Een kleur om in te bijten... of aan te likken :-) want op de één of andere manier doet het me aan een ijsje denken!

  2. Stofjes genoeg , zo te zien! Naai ze ;-)
    En de kleur vind ik echt om vrolijk van te worden...

  28. Eureka! This is a fabulous find, I LOVE it. The first machine my Mom had was a Domestic, also all steel. I remember her getting to close and the tread up-take hit her in the forehead. I swear I saw a dent there. TFS and bringing back a "Mom" memory.
