When I re-did my sewing machine cabinet, I received a few funny comments asking where my sewing machine was. I don't have the first inkling on how to sew anything, let alone actually USE a sewing machine, but I am excited to start learning.
First, I had to modernize / Kara-ize (yep, I'm a verb) the cabinet so that it was more my style. The next step was to actually see if I could mount the sewing machine. My T. Mom had had this cabinet and the sewing machine sitting around for quite awhile, and my Dad never got around to seeing if it would mount inside. I believe the cabinet was initially a Habitat Restore purchase.
Erin was over one day and we took a look to see if it'd be possible to actually get the sewing machine IN the sewing machine cabinet. The screw that attached to the bottom of the cabinet was SO much smaller than the screw that was already in the cabinet. Easy solution, right? Just take the screw that held the bottom piece of the sewing machine together to Big Blue or Big Orange and get the same sized screw only smaller.
Well, easy for most people. In between actually making it to the store, I had a few Kara moments and lost the screw. Boo me. Erin told me to take in the bigger screw and just go for something smaller. She's so smart!
So this past weekend, that's exactly what we did. We came home with three different sets of screws, and guess what?
Do you see what I see?!
Hello upside down sewing machine!
Ah, there you are!!! And here's a picture of the magic that makes this possible:
It's okay, I already know I'm a dork, you don't have to tell me. The little things excite me. I am now officially ready for my lessons E!
