OK, I admit it, I’ve fallen in love. And Twitter was to blame…
Somehow, somewhere I spotted THE most gorgeous sewing machine, combining two of my favourite things – high-tech gubbins and retro styling.
As soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it (on my ‘favourite products’ Pinterest board at least).
And here it is! Excuse me while up mop up the drool. It’s a special edition retro Singer, available from John Lewis.
I inherited my mum’s old sewing machine when she splashed out on a new one. She had it for her 21st birthday so it’s xx years old (I’ll leave you to guess, but suffice to say that it’s even older than I am!). Despite being a shallow girl who is easily impressed by flashy new gadgets, I don’t have the heart to give it away. Besides, it had the guts to help me create Moo’s dinosaur costume a couple of weeks ago, we were a great team!
I also possess a ‘so old it even pre-dates retro’ Singer machine, which, with its broken motor, is being donated to my friend Lizzie, who apparently is a sucker for abandoned sewing machines.
