I got a new sewing machine!
Singer machine. Mine is all electronic, and it is wonderful. The fabric
samples demo what all it can do. The coolest things it does are thread
the needle automatically, and it measures buttonhole sizes
automatically to create the perfect fit buttonhole. Oh, it sews on
buttons too. Now I can do some mending and altering that has been
waiting for 1-3 years since my other two sewing machines refused to
work for me.
I did open pant surgery on some coffee print flannel pj pants that I
made a few years ago. Their elastic had worn out elastic. I opened up
the casing and reinstalled new elastic. I also found about four holes
that I was able to mend with the multi-stitch zigzag on my machine.
