I finally put the finishing touches on the custom 1928 Singer 66 last night! Remember, this was a machine that was picked out of the trash last year; it was rusty, missing parts, and the finish was totally shot.
You can see a few of my earlier posts about painting the 66 here, and here. I totally free-hand painted these designs on the machine, inspired by the decals of another Singer 66 Red Eye in my collection.
It looks pretty eclectic, and a little funky. But, I like it. As for the machine itself, all it needed was a little tension adjustment and it sews like a dream!
Nice stitches! My plan for this baby is to use it for events like small crafting and sewing projects, so I am able to host pop-up events anywhere regardless of access to electricity. I'm already thinking of using this for my next small project, a patchwork apron.
Well, that's one more unfinished project to check off the list! Only 3 (or maybe 4) more to go so I can be all caught up to start the NEXT batch of projects!
