Meet Valentine

Here she is My Black 221K
All rewired & ready to go
Named her Valentine as she came into the world on 14th Feb 1955
Kilbowie Clydebank, Scotland 

My name is Pam
and I AM a featherweight addict!
I also did a little freemotion this week with some fabric scraps
I got when I went to the craft show & the NEC Birmingham

 I also made this little needle case

I got this silly Kitty Cat kit with a magazine subscription
Made up quickly thinking what on earth will I do with it
Should not have worried my daughter bagged it for her bedroom

Big Smile!
Here she is straight from the box

Machine getting a spoiling

The Singer featherweight is getting a spoiling
although I am still waiting on a replacement bobbin case so have not been able to sew with it yet,
it has had a good cleaning & oiling & purrs like a cat
I made this great little Tote come cover with cute little bag to hold the foot peddle
this great pattern was courtesy of craftyhipster HERE

 "Its a Cover"
 Little foot peddle bag a neat idea as peddle sits on machine bed when its in its case & could quite easily scratch the paintwork and i would not like that!

Turn it over &
 "Its a Tote"

and it all fits neatly into the sewing machine case
handles make it easy to remove!

I have to try & get the musty smell out of the case next
any ideas

Singer featherweight

Look what I got
A sweet little white Singer featherweight 221K
1963 model I was just 8 when she was born!
I am waiting on new bobbin case assembly"££ don't ask" before I can use it as the one that came with it was really badly rusted supprise really as the machine & case are really quite perfect
it even has the original white motor belt & its in perfect condition
little box with the attachments & pale blue case with navy lid 
its so cute!
I must say I was really surprised  just how light & small it is in real life,
 I would have loved one of these when I was a kid but never new they even existed
so used my mums 99K to make my dollies outfits 
will post more pictures when I get her new bits & hopefully she will sew!
