First Post!

Hello! This is my very first post for the blog. Yay! 😀

So for this first post I’m going to show of my sewing work space. At the moment I don’t have any sewing done but I was too eager to start my blog. Haha

To start off I’m showing off my sewing machine.

What I have is a Singer Futura II Model 920. From what I understand this machine is from the 1970’s. It’s older than me! Haha

Now this one belonged to my grandmother and I love that there is history behind it. This machine was used to make all sorts of clothes, backpacks, purses, etc. for my mother and her siblings. From what my mother has told me, the very last outfit made on this machine was my Jasmine Halloween costume! 😀 After that, for some reason, it was put away and never used again.

My grandmother has been gone for a few years now and it’s just been sitting somewhere in my grandpa’s house collecting dust. But just this past weekend my grandpa gave it to me. And not only that, he also had the sewing table that went with it. So cool.

I don’t know too much about the table but I think it’s pretty cool. The sewing machine fits on the top and when it’s not in use it goes down and inside the table. The doors close and the tops fold on top creating a regular table. I’ve never seen anything like this before.

Typing all of this has made me excited to start sewing! I already have my vintage 50’s dress pattern and this weekend I’m going to get the fabric. I don’t know what color I want though. Hmm, maybe I’ll pick another Jasmine color. 😉

Happy sewing!
