My Creative Space

Has a new gadget in it. I bought it (on Ebay) mostly for the case it came in.....

But also because it turns a mechanical sewing machine into one that does automatic buttonholes.

I haven't got time to play with it right now, but I'm a bit in love with the way it looks. I don't even care if it doesn't work.

To take a peek into other creative spaces over at Kirstys...

And - Oh my LORDY.... The selvage giveaway!!! I was expecting one or two people to be interested so am a bit surprised by the overwhelming response. Jodie - What did you start???
I'll do a draw for them sometime next week. I might divide the stash into a couple of bundles.

Don't you love all the really cool gadgets you can get for sewing machines. I would love to see it in action, as I have never seen one of those and have no idea how it would work. And YES the box is very cute!

Mel said...

Oh yeah that container would have done it for me too ;)

I love how blogland makes us feel normal about our oddness. I would have bought something like that for the case too.

Ha, ha, love it! I once bought a knitting machine because of the retro color (blue and soft yellow). After I got home I discovered it was a very good choice because the machine was in great condition and ready to use :D

Oh I just read about these too! Would love to see results because I'm struggling to imagine how it works...I drove past your studio today and contemplated dropping in - are you too busy for visitors??

Karen said...

Yep - I'd be getting it just for the box too!
Would love to see it in action.

I am crappity crap at buttonholes... CRAPPITY CRAP. Mmmmhmm.

I wonder if it would work on a non-singer sewing machine... I am absoloutely intrigued now..! Make sure you let us know how you go!

I spent most of my 4-H sewing years on a Singer that used this automatic buttonholer - it makes fantastic buttonholes and perfect every time. Plus it makes a cool noise while it's doing it - reminds me a bit of traveling on the train across country with my parents from Washington State to Minnesota many times when I was a kid...clickety-clack :-)
