The grandchildren think Nanna’s new sewing machine (780) is ‘awesome’ and couldn’t wait to be able to try it out. I had to think of something simple and easy for Euan so chose a draw-string bag. We found some super fabric with tractors on it. I needn’t have worried as he coped really well. Isn’t he a study in concentration – and then the proudest owner of his bag?!
For Caitlyn I thought she would be able to handle something a bit more challenging – which she did with flying colours. She coped with everything I set her to do including adding a pocket. The fabric has horses on and the pocket is a framed bunch of rosettes – of course! Another happy bunny.
These simple bags are prefect for budding sewers. Straight stitch and stitch #4 to secure the edges of the seam allowances. They loved the automated foot-raise button and the scissors button! Caitlyn even got to do some reverse stitching with the reverse button. The whole computerised aspect of the machine didn’t faze them at all.
