a bit of sewing

I have a new to me machine again. This time it's a circa 1965 Singer. It's an oldie but goodie. It's been very well cared for and in some respects is easier to use than my brand new brother that's currently broken. In fact, this Singer can sew through about 8 layers of heavy weight fabric without too much trouble!

So the new machine and I have been getting to know each other the last couple of days. I've managed to put together one dress for Lizzy and, in my piece for the environment, three reusable grocery bags. I even did some applique on the bags. They aren't very pretty as I'm still trying to work out the kinks in my design. So far, I'm liking french seams instead of a lining. It makes for a very durable bag.
