Hurricane Irma is gone and there will be no school untill Monday and one of my son’s got bored and asked me what he could do?. After I finished re-organizing all the sewing stuff in the garage, he came back and now he is working on his own experiment 😉😃👍
I saw it online for a few days, was priced very cheap, and I wonder why but decided that I wanted it, to my surprise when I contacted the owner, she texted me back the address with a messages that read “I’ll leave it for you at this place ×××, just come and get it”. I didn’t have to pay, she gave it to me for free. The first thing I did back home was check what was wrong with it, To my surprise the bobin threader and thread pool were the only things broken nothing else, so I went online, downloaded the manual, fixed those and now it’s working just fine. I’ll use it for light projects because after reading the manual and opening it I discovered that this specific sewing machine was ment for beginners and the motor is tiny.
I don’t usually write with My posts, but this time I wanted to share how I got this baby. Just a few days after christmas my husband and I went to a flea market and saw these sewing machine and what I liked about it was that it had a monogram but I didn’t buy it then, because the guy wanted a lot of $$$ for it and he didn’t even know if it worked or not, so we left without it. Two Sundays passed and we went back, and it was still there, my husband looked back at me and asked me “Do U Want it?” I didn’t want him to spend 💰 not knowing if the machine would work, but he knows me, so he went and started negotiating the price because some things were missing like the foot control. finally they agreed on a price and we got it. We took a risk anyway, because again there was no way to test it over there. once we got home the first thing I did was clean it, because it smelled like cigarettes and it was yellow-ish, then download the manual which by the way was free, follow the instructions steps by step and it WORKS!!! I’m so happy that it works, Now to learn more about it and see what new projects I can make with it.
My son’s were fighting over a bag our pastor gave me for whoever likes it, oh! boy that created a huge argument between my two boy, finally they agree on how they were going to share it during the week, of course til someone made another one that looks like it, we’ll not exactly like the one that was given to us, but with more pockets, was a success, 🙂
littler by litter I’ve been updating the garage which I use as my sewing studio, this time were the curtain, more updates coming soon. 🙂
Now that I finally gave this set to the future Mom, I can show it up. 🙂 ❤
Getting ready for spring break!!!

My Friend Ginette’s first hat, I felt so proud of her that couldn’t resist to post it here, of course with her consent, and in respect to her, I kept her face cover-up from the public view. please let us know what you think of it and you are also very welcome to rate it, and thanks for visiting my page!! ❤
I’ve made a skirt for my niece, but l liked it so much that have to made one for me too.
I went to my local store to buy something’s and couldn’t resist to get this Elvis fabric, knowing that someone very close to my is a Fan of this long gone celeb. And then decided to make him a pillow cover and a pair of short pants. I’m feeling happy knowing that Tonight someone is going to have nice dreams, hahahaha!!!… 🙂
Not been able to do any out door activity, because of the rainy weather and not having the resource to take them anywhere, I try to keep my kids busy, because as any other kids they love to watch TV and play VG, but I always try to involved them in different thins like, helping me making snacks, desert (which they love), and because I like to sew from time to time I asked them if they want to make something or wanted me to make something for them.
This time one of my son’s wanted something different than a stuffed animal, or cloth, he told me that he wanted something bigger, not knowing what to make, I just went and look where I store some of the fabric that was given to me by a neighbor and found that I’ve had few fabric with cartoon prints , I show them to my son and asked him if he likes them, he’s responded affirmatively, we started looking for ideas an came across some quilting images which he like, and we started working immediately.
We first looked information ONLINE, because I’ve never done it before and I’m not going to lye to you, it’s pretty scary as you read the information on how to work a quilt, all the #, math and measures, that involved. But it was for my son, so I was ready to give it a try, hopefully he like it at the end.
not finished yet !!!!
ahhh!!! what a work, not easy at all to please a teenager this days. My daughter just turned 15 few days ago, but before that day came, I wanted to make her a dress, a simple one, to take a picture of her, to remember, you know memories from that only, unique, special day. I knew that in our situation, I couldn’t make her anything fancy, you see I move with my kids here to the US, about 5yrs now, I think just giving it a guest, well you get the idea, NO big Family here!!… but still I wanted to be a special day for her, and even if it was just us (her brothers, her, daddy and mommy) I was determine to make her that dress, and of course she had a to give her opinion (the most difficult part) because it was for her, and I knew she was not going to wear it if she didn’t like it, something I didn’t want it to happen after all the work I was going to put in to it. And you haven’t had the experience yet I advice you just to be patience.
1. Mom, I’m not getting married!!! to white!!!
2. I do like purple, but I’m not a lil gril anymore, it looks like a princess dress.
3. Oh! ok!, I like black, touches, finally you’re listening to me.
4. Yep!, looks modern, simple and I can wear it for different occasions. (before 5 we ran out of lace and was a journey trying to find the same lace which sadly we couldn’t find)
5. There’s always a plan – B, and that was the final result of our dress.
My son just loved any cartoon figure that he sees on TV, and for this month of October he started to begging me to make him a Finns backpack and because I want my kids to leave their imagination runs wild with creative ideas we came to an arrangement, that I would look information on how to make the backpack, but he will be the one making it with just a bit of my help.
