Janome Sew Mini machine. This cute thing is NOT a toy! Awesome, affordable basic machine for the everyday with straight stitching and a few zig-zag stitches. Unfortunately, you can’t change the presser foot (read: NO button-holes, NO zippers, etc.) Interested? Check out price/video reviews here.
Car successfully moved to California? Check. Sewing machine here? Check. Sewing work area setup? CHECK!
It has been such a long while that I got all scared of my machine again. You know that I’m-scared-to-take-this-thing-outta-the-box feelings. That’s absolutely ridiculous, I know. Especially since this thing is such a little guy (only 5 lbs), and I’m acting like I’ve never sewn before in life. As much as I don’t like to admit, I think I’m just still adjusting to a new place change/job change/EVERYTHING change and living with 4 other people in one space that are doing the same.
But the best way I figure to help anyone settle is to make what little space you have yours. I’m considering this Burda 7351 pattern my official warm-up project. This pattern actually requires buttons, but since my machine is limited on features, I’ll be hand-sewing snaps instead I think. I gotta save up for a heavy-duty machine!
I pretty much packed an all-summer wardrobe here from Houston. Fall season is going to arrive sometime, and a girl desperately needs to step up her sleeve game. (Burda 7351, version A)
I founds this light-weight cotton at IKEA, and I figured for a $1.99/yard it would make an appropriate (and quite possibly hideous) trial run.
We’ll see how things turn out.
