My Mom’s Antique Singer Sewing Machine

May 13th, 2012 at 8:20 pm . Posted in Life at Sew Alluring, Thoughts on Sewing .

My mom inspired me to learn to sew, and I remember using her antique Singer sewing machine when I was a kid. At the time I wasn’t interested in sewing décor or adjusting clothes for myself. Back then, my sister and I sewed sleeping bags for our Beanie Babies (remember those?!), and I made a few little fabric notebook covers — nothing difficult or fancy, but a precursor to my current interest in sewing. The Singer was not only my mom’s, but my grandmother’s as well.

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, and especially to mine! I honestly can’t imagine a better mom.

    Hello there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having
    trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!
