I did kill one sewing machine.  It was a Kenmore from the 70's that I paid $10 for.  But it's replacement, a $40 Necchi Mira I found on Craigslist could totally handle it.  It's from 1953 and I love it so much. 
Older sewing machines are so much better than the new ones and I could go on and on about that and it gets boring after awhile...probably. 

But it is so true! My mom's machine is an Elna from the 50s, and it is a tank. The foot is almost the only plastic on it, it weighs a ton, but it has sewn all kinds of things -- and survived a scalding water flood -- with nary a problem.

That's amazing - I can't imagine the time and patience that it took to complete it.  What a great idea! And the pockets are also so functional...I could totally see myself stuffing things into them...snacks, cross word puzzles, flask of whiskey - and forgetting they're there. You must be so happy with the result.

Has anyone suggested embroidering "remote" on the appropriate pocket?

This is sooo awesome!

you have done a GREAT job,
you are my hero!!!

I started a denim patchwork recover of my sofa about two years ago and never finshed

I do now feel inspired looking at this to go to that big box of denim and start again Smiley
