Toy machine


This was my mother's when she was a child.




And I remember playing with it when I was a kid.






Maybe I should dust it.

Adorable, it looks like it might even sew a simple stitch!

So pretty, does it works?

Sara said...

Is it functioning or just for looks and memories of course? These are the things that are so valuable to an individual and this specifically for a sewer/quilter:)

My mother has one similar to this only red. She displays it in her living room. I ought to try it and see how it sews.

So flipping cute! My mum didn't pass down any toys but from what I understand, whatever toys she had, my grandma wouldn't let her play with them lest she ruin them lol Sad sad mum.

And don't dust... cuts into quilting time...
