Feeling crafty these days. I was lucky enough to treat myself to a new sewing machine last month, and have been playing with it a lot! I was tired of fighting with old hand-me-down machines that hardly ever worked, I wanted to pick a project and go!

I decided on the Singer 7256 Fashion Mate model. (It's nothing too fancy, but I wanted something with cool stitches!) The price was right and I do like it so far!

It has been really great to get a few small projects done and get a feel for the machine! This weekend has been a rainy grey crappy one,  and I did get a chance to make a few things!

Some basic envelope pillows made with vintage fabric that I have been hoarding for a long, long, long time!

and a fun, basic infinity scarf, made with a type of vintage, knit jersey with sailboats on it! Whee!!

Next up: some basic kids skirts!!
