Warning: Have been known to fling poo!
I can only imagine how difficult those antique sewing machines were to operate.
I can't sew. I probably could if my life actually depended on it. But it doesn't so I don't. lol
I wish I could sew ... Anything! I do hope to see the diaper cover.
The old-timey sewing machines seem nowadays almost like pieces of art. -to be admired and not used.
Must have been so sentimental and intricate for you. Don't give up though, you've creativity galore!
