So as long as I had the 201-2 out I thought I would start on my daughter in law's birthday present. Max said that I should make her a big tote bag with a zipper. I actually bought some fabric earlier this year just for this project.
BUT before I cut into this fabric, I wanted to make a prototype.
Zippers and I don't get a long that well. I have never perfected a straight seam when I sew the zipper in place. I worked all afternoon on getting it just right. I worked so hard, I didn't take any pictures.
I did take some pictures when I first started. This one, of the machine sitting in its base that I built, shows just how messy my sewing loft is.
I know that I have a lot of machines. Some people think I have a scarey number of machines and some people are worried about me. I am not worried about me. I cannot stand the mess around me. I could not be a hoarder because I am bothered by the mess. Not so bothered to stop sewing today and clean up. But bothered enough so that this week I vow to organize that loft.
The 201 is a wonderful machine and this one is my logo. I love how it sounds
