I have to admit I am a lucky girl when I comes to crafting material. I have a nice supply of burlap Coffee bags.
And the Hubby found and purchased this nifty little ditty last week:
A singer 15-91 1947.. Gear driven with Potted motor and original cabinet.
Nope do not want anything for this obsession. I now own 4 vintage Singer Machines.
Lets see what happens when I combined the two!
Not to bad! Here are a few notes to self: When sewing burlap use the shortest stitch your machine will sew to prevent fraying.
Singer 15-91's are perfect for this project..they are gear driven... this one will sew leather...and they have a consistent stitch width as small as 30 stitches per inch. I would never sew coffee bag burlap on my electronic machine. They are dusty and shed more than retail burlap you get off the bolt. Coffee bag burlap is also thicker I broke two needles ..the first I was not thinking, I had a standard needle trying to do a heavy duty job...the second time I forgot to let the feed dog do its job. I made two pillows the second was shy and did not make the photo shoot.
I hope you are inspired to be creative it is a great stress reliever!
