I love finding things in cheap things that I buy. Make sense? haha.

When I got my vintage sewing machine table from craigslist(FOR FREE!!) I found the manual for the "new" singer featherweight sewing machine that's only *drumroll* 11 pounds Cheesy! And a bunch of old stuff including this: http://i233.photobucket.com/albums/ee40/formycraftster/039.jpg .. Any idea what it is?

Haha!  I have a Singer Featherweight... and it ain't.  I served me well from age 9 or so into my mid-late 20s though.  Of course, I used my mom's new)er machine for anything that I would want to finish the seams on.  Or make button holes in.  Which brings me to thinking that what you have there might be a button hole maker.  I was given a Singer one, but it's away in a box and as I never used it I don't remember exactly what it looks like.

I think it is a buttonholer too.
What model number is the machine?

Um, all I got was the table/desk thing with all the random old stuff shoved in the drawers. I did find a tiny manual(I guess I never noticed it before, derrr Roll Eyes) with a picture of that thingy on the front and it is a Kenmore buttonhole attachment.. but I have a Singer Simple. So that makes it.. useless?
Huh

Nothing is ever useless! There is always something you can do with it  Smiley

Not sure a Singer will accept a Kenmore foot though. Anyone?

I don't think it's really pretty, and I already have a buttonhole attachment for my singer..
I'll probably just give it away on craigslist or freecycle.

That is so lovely!!! I am bookmarking this in case my collection of vintage notions ever gets big enough to do this. I do have one vintage needlebook that is special to me because it is from the store where my grandfather worked...it actually has a drawing of the store on the outside.
