Thanks everyone!

They are not interfaced, but you could easily do so to make them stiffer!

It is a long weekend here, and it's rainy and cold.  Sad

So I took the opportunity to spend the afternoon at the sewing machine after being inspired by a post on the Prudent Baby blog for dress up bird wings. Super adorable! Mine are a little different, and my daughter loves them!

A little close up of a wing.

And just for this picture she decided they were vampire wings.

They actually were put together pretty quickly, and it gave me some good use out of older fabric I haven't touched in ages. I'm super happy with how well they turned out, and that my daughter hasn't taken them off yet and has been running around the house "tweeting".  Cheesy

16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Can you help me identify this vintage stuff? on: April 09, 2011 09:32:52 AM
Hello Smiley

I purchased 2 large bags of vintage looking notions and trims and sewing accessories, and these things were in the mix!

I am still fairly new to sewing, and no little to nothing about the older machine parts.

Can you help me figure out what this stuff is?

The black metal pc I was able to identify by a readable part number. It appears to be a Singer needle threader, but not sure for what models.

The needle has a small and also a large eye and a blunted end.

I can SORTA make out that this small zipper foot is Singer, but can't make out the part number and don't know if it is maybe missing something.

That other metal pc only has Japan stamped on it, but nothing else.

And here's where I'm sure I sound like a newbie  Cheesy, those 2 small rocks look like they were for sharpening something I can see the wear, but what would they have been used for?

Do any of you experts recognize this stuff? I truly appreciate your input!

19  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Any reviews on the Elna Lock L4 serger? on: March 19, 2011 03:59:36 PM

I have never used a serger before and would like to learn. I have been searching for a local used one on line and found an Elna Lock L4 serger within my price range.

I know this is an older machine, but am having trouble finding reviews on line for it, or a lot of helpful info for a newbie such as myself.   

Has anyone ever used this machine and if so how did you like it (for the type of projects you did)?

I can't afford to invest in a newer model right now, especially since I don't have any serger experience.

Any info you might have would be great!  Smiley Thanks!

Love them! Saw similars on Etsy a while ago and always meant to get a Sharpie paint pen for just this reason! Very cute!
