Isn't This Sew Great? Get It? "Sew" Great?! Status: Not Quitin' My Day Job.
Picked up this amazing vintage modern sewing machine a few years ago. It was lookin' all sad and lonely at the Goodwill down the street just beggin' to be taken home.
Ain't that a Killer set of Chevron handles? And the Machine is blue...Blue! Blue is
for boys, right? Yeah, blue sewing machines are for boys! Sew, it's like totally OK
for Mr. Modtomic to have a blue sewing machine. See how I worked that in again?
I'm a friggin' genius.
It came with a load of needles, bobbins (see, I know what I'm talkin' 'bout here),
thread and all sorts of accessories. I have actually used it too, to hem some
curtains and a few pant legs. Mr. Modtomic is a man of many talents...well, abilities
Problem is, the last time I tried to use it I couldn't get the drag set right so that the
seam wasn't even on the back and front. I kept messing with it but it just wouldn't
come around. I think it might have been the fact that I was trying to sew some
thicker material. I need to experiment and practice more.
