I have just purchased this stunning little Singer sewing machine. The machine is solid steel, works perfectly & was manufactured in Scotland in 1940. It is a hand crank machine, which makes it more than just an awesome piece of machinery, it makes it carbon neutral, as I won’t need to plug it in to do my sewing. The sewing machine is heavy duty & sews thick canvas, leather & denim. Forget the plastic machinery of today & rock out with an old fashioned singer! These models are still very popular in developing countries such as India, where electricity is not always available.
Love the environment & get crafty!
This is a vintage working toy sewing machine from the 60’s. It is miniature & runs on batteries or with a hand crank.
MACRAME WAS HUGE IN THE CRAFT MOVEMENT OF THE 70’S AND LIKE ALL THINGS RETRO IT IS HAVING A RESURGENCE. SOME SREET ARTISTS HAVE EVEN TURNED THEIR HAND TO THE ART OF THE KNOT AND HAVE BEEN YARN BOMBING POLES AND POSTS WITH MACRAME.
Matching sweaters never go out of style! I found this photograph in a vintage movie magazine from the 1950’s.
Knitting needles at the ready! It’s time for some funky retro knit action.
I think this guy needs these yarn bombed headphones, from my previous yarn bombing post.
Knitting is da bomb, da yarn bomb.
