Last Monday I introduced you to my first sewing project, a plushie squirrel. Hand sewing this critter was quite the challenge, but I was happy with the result. And although hand sewing is an enjoyable exercise, it was time for me to buy a sewing machine. No sooner said than done I was off to Ikea last Monday evening.
I hear you thinking “a sewing machine at Ikea?”. Exactly my thought when I found out about the SY sewing machine while surfing the net. It’s cheap (€79.95 or $69.99 USD) and apparantly not bad at all. Although reviews are somewhat contradicting on whether it is a good machine for a beginner, I figured I would give this one a try. Mostly because I can afford this one. ;) Also important, my mom gave me her blessing for buying this little cute machine. And for those who are not regular to our blog: my mom creates all our lovely items for Mippoos and up till now I only helped with the creative process a little and mostly focused on all online aspects. But hopefully I can now start learning how to sew and help build inventory.
