Oh excitement. A new love in my life. My sister had kindly lent me her machine. I embarked on sewing all manner of things immediately, including a wee range of little kid trousers. And then she started making noises about repossessing it and it responded by skipping stitches. Turns out she’s never used it since buying it off trademe and well, shame on my empty pockets but i didn’t want to get it serviced. So, i looked and looked and bid wisely on the aforesaid trademe and found this wee beauty. For a snippet of what i’d seen in the stores. He he. Not sure why that is such a thrilling feeling for me, but it is.
Rules upon taking ownership of ‘new’ machine, is to sew something for myself first. I dug through my modest fabric stash (re-purposed fabric mainly) and used the hideous plastic cover the machine came with as a model for the new sewing machine cover. It sews like a dream. It’s owner needs some more sleep to be as good, but you get that.
A brother 2500. I had entertained fantasies of a metal bodied professional machine (and overlocker, and, and..) but reality prevailed. This does all i need - for now.
Jed now has enough mama made trousers to see him through the winter. He gets to wear the prototypes. Trousers aside, i have a pile of fabric and BIG plans.
