    On the left is the machine of my childhood. It was a big day when my mother got a reliable machine on which to make my clothes. I found a little sister on Craigslist. She looks like she's been used very little. She quickly made 3 prs. of matching pajama pants while she was in Indianapolis. I think she might like to travel with me to FL when I visit 2 other DGD's this summer.

    The kids are adorable, and they sure look happy in their matching cute doggies pjs. Wow what a wonderful find your featherweight was. I think it needs to go to Florida with you.

    Great pictures. The kids are adorable. I can just hear them laughing and singing and the serious one figuring out which dog he really likes. That picture would make anyone smile.

    Cute PJs and machines - are they models 15-91 and 221 (Featherweight)?

    My daughter just purchased a 15-91 at an estate sale while looking for a copy of my 221. I have been trying to get a feel for the size of her machine and your photo is really a good size comparison of the machines.

    Did you know - all of the attachments for your 15-91 will work on the 221 (since they are both low shank machines). Only thing different is the bobbin (which is NOT interchangeable). I found this out today at our guild biannual quilt show - one of the vendors specializes in old singer attachments. I was looking for attachments for my daughters machine.

    Congrats on your find!

    Your machines look like new!! The kids are all so cute and think they love their new p.j. bottoms. I make flannel bottoms for my grandkids too.
    Nice job!!

    I thought when I first looked, the Singers were the kids. Very cute, all of them.

    Your family members are so cute, both your human ones and the "singers".
