Sewing Fun.... Vintage Friday Pretties

 Learning to sew is so much fun...
 this is the sweet little toy machine...
 I learned to sew simple stitches on when I was a child :-)
It really worked!
 For more Friday Pretties visit Joyce at I Love Pretty Little Things...
and for Vintage Inspiration visit Debra at Common Ground...
 I'll try and have my giveaway up next week.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Blessings,
Marcia

  2. I am FAR from the greatest seamstress but have always felt that with my machine, I can create lovely things for my home and for gift items. I love creating. Thanks for showing off your machine. I'm pretty sure that was the model used in Home Ec class in the late 1970's :)

    Blessings!

  4. That is a picture of one of my favorite all time sewing machines. I learned on my grandmothers,only it was new I think. :) I saw your link picture with Calico Ghost town, We had such a blast there. It is a nice place to visit in the winter.

  5. I love the sewing machine! I'm still afraid of my mom's - we share it and slowly but surely I'm getting to grips with it! We might be good friends some day!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Those old Singers were the best. They ran and ran and ran...the ones today are not nearly as well made-all plastic parts and not the quality the older ones had. I love yours! Hugs-Diana

  12. That is the cutest little machine! I wish I'd had one and learned to sew as a child. I have taught myself how to make things and believe me, it's my own way! LOL

  14. I took a sewing class once. I was really bad. My mom is great at sewing. I wished I inherited that trait from her.

  15. Hi Marcia,
    What a cute little sewing machine! I learned to sew in high school, but haven't done much since then. I didn't have the patience for it. I always wished I had kept up with it.

    Have a great weekend! :)

  16. That little machine looks spanking brand new. Too bad I didn't have one of those when I was little. I want to learn to sew so am hoping I'll pick up some tips with my Yarn and Fiber group. However, the next meeting will be knitting. Yikes! I was never able to figure that out when my cousin tried to teach me. :) Loved your little boy post. My younger one is noise, dirt and action all the time. Hapy weekend. Tammy

  17. Hi Marcia,
    I hope wverything is fine with all of you! This sewing machine looks very much like my mum's, and it brings back lots of memories, like when I tried to learn how to sew, and the needle went right through the tip of my finger! But that has healed by now! And I'm still sewing!

    Life is busy, and I do not get to comment as much as I like, but this weened I hope to take a big round!

    Next week me and my daughter are going to London, and I look very much forward to that! Just hope the weather gets a little warmer!

    Have a nice weekend!

    Hugs Cathrine :-)

  24. Marcia, My granddaughter, McKenna, age 10, wants to be a fashion designer. She made her first skirt this past weekend while here. It was her first time to sew on a sewing machine. I had to do the zipper but she did most of the rest, then wore it to church on Sunday. She was thrilled beyond words. I know I created a great memory for when I'm gone!

    Hope Ryan is doing well. Love to all, Gloria

  29. It looks brand new, Marcia. You have taken very good care of it. What a sweet little machine. Have either of your daughters been interested in it or in sewing?
    Love the outdoor pictures. So light.
    Thanks for sharing such a special keepsake of your childhood.
    I learned on my Mom's converted Singer (converted to electrical from a treadle). I guess that's what happened to a lot of the old treadles.
