Sewing project bags on my Singer Featherweight 221.

What is this? It's my Singer Featherweight 221! :) 

When I first found out that I was pregnant, I panicked and was depressed and crying hysterically for 3 days. On the third day, I was playing around on my phone and went into the Craigslist app, and found this Featherweight for $200 locally. It was so well maintained, it was so shiny! My 3-day panic attack went away so fast. 

This sewing machine is what I use for small projects like making project bags! I made so many because I kind of got carried away at the local fabric shop and got a ton of cute cotton fabrics. 


This is my sewing station. I got this sewing cabinet around Thanksgiving, because I realized I couldn't keep all my sharp sewing needles and sewing machine things in the baby room. My Featherweight looks so cute on it! All my sewing machines (Janome sewing machine and Brother serger too) live in it now.

I have a lot of fabric in my stash too, the ones I saved for dresses or skirts, but I think now I'm kind of obsessed with these project bags and will use those fabrics for project bags.
