Lola - My First Sewing Machine

Lola - My First Sewing Machine

Update as of August 2020: This was originally posted on my now defunct tumblr blog. I am consolidating all of my old posts for posterity and updating the posts as I see fit for the new layout and style of this space.

You may view the original post here.

I am absolutely in love with my sewing machine. It’s so pretty and compact that I want to sew everyday (even if I can’t).

Here are the features of my machine:

  • Stop/Start button
  • Slide out accessory tray
  • Snap on presser foot
  • Presser feet included: universal, zipper, buttonhole and side cutter (I got this one as a freebie!)
  • Front loading bobbin

Some things missing from the machine:

  • Seam guide on my needle plate to help make straighter stitches
  • Light (but I can use a small LED light for this)

To read how I got this beautiful baby, go to this post.

If you’re wondering why I named my sewing machine as Lola, go read Stephanie Perkin’s Lola and the Boy Next Door. I loved that book to pieces and my Goodreads book review for that goes as:

Hello book, you complete me.

I guess that sums up how much I love that book, go read that book. NOW.
