I've decided that our recently turned 4 year old DD will not be learning to sew
on the POS plastic "toy" Singer chain-stitch machine that I recently bought for her.
In fact, it is going back from whence it came post-haste.
Instead, I've decided to turn my Great-Grandmother's
Model 15 treadle head into a hand-crank with a bolt-on adapter.
I'll need to give her lots of TLC as she's been stored and unused for over 50 years.
My mother has another Singer in GG's treadle cabinet
..and honestly, I don't have the room for it in my house.
For now, the head is still at my mother's house, 8 hours away from me...
but I'm making plans!
I found a site that shows you how to make one of these seemingly simple
to build bases for heads that we have no cases or cabinets!
I'm looking forward to getting started on this project..
and I'm sure DH will love to have an opportunity to use his power tools. :)
