Perhaps you remember when my friend Pattie gave me this 1904 Singer 15K machine.
This is how it looked when I got it.
Today it shines like new. Look at that fly wheel, I never knew you could get it back to almost new. Thanks to my friend Phil, he is the man when it comes to restoring my machines. Sadly some of the decal had been abused. This happened when a previous owner wrapped a cloth around the machine and used it as her pin cushion. Yikes!
Now compare the before and after of the case. All I did to restore it was some denatured alcohol and lots of elbow grease.
So to show my appreciation to Pattie, I decided to make a penny table runner for her.
I checked out pictures on her facebook page and tried to match the color of the newly remodeled kitchen at her cozy little cabin in the woods.
This felt work was so much fun. I went to Pinterest . . . big mistake!
I got hooked.
In the past two weeks I have made all these needle keepers. It's a small 3 inch square book. Most of them have 4 felt pages to hold your sewing needles. I've already shipped some to Alaska and Minnesota!!
These are $12 each and the cheapest I've found to mail them is $5.05, regardless of how many.
These are also needle keepers. They open into a circle. They are $6.00 each.
On Friday, I asked the blacksmith to make a spool holder for me. I had spools of ribbon uncurling all over my sewing table. This is what he came up with.
Here's a close up. . .
So that is how I FELT!!
