My baby...

This is my baby.
My 1960's Singer sewing machine.

Bought for me by my dad and step-mum, and currently living at theirs until I move and have room for it.
When I was home recently I embarked on my first paid dressmaking job, and making the toile on it was fun. This heavy beast works, but I had to make a makeshift spool as the original one was missing. I fashioned it out of a bit of blu-tack and a plastic knitting needle. 
Make-do and mend indeed!

Pip pip xx


  1. Very exciting Rosie! (new flat plus new sewing machine). All the boys we met were such cuties, if your landlord says yes they have my seal of approval ;) x


Please leave me a comment, I'd love to hear what you beauties think.
