After years of daydreaming, I’ve decided to learn to sew. I got my mom’s old Singer Athena 2000 from the 70’s in working order. I had to buy replacement feet because she had no idea where the originals went. My mom is not much of a sewer. In fact I’ve never seen her sew. She made one thing with this machine.
I thought about buying a new machine, but I think the quality of this old horse would be better than any new one I could afford.
Anyhoo. I made a pillowcase using a pattern from the book “Sew Fast Sew Easy” by Elissa Meyrich. A Christmas present from my hubby. I also own “sewing for Dummies” and The vogue sewing book.
I made it for my 3-year-old son. He was so happy. “I love you, Mommy. I like my pillow. You are a good maker”
