Finish Up Friday - Machine Case


My Dear Dad finished my new oak Sewing machine case this week. It is for my featherweight sewing machine. 
I had a case but was in bad shape and the buckles were both broken and you had to hug it to carry it. 


The old case did not have a tray. Dad was able to make a new tray for the case. You can see we added a strip of magnet so the bobbins do not roll around and bounce out. It just all fits so perfectly.


Dad also got brass plates made with my name and phone number. He added a brass plate with Spring Ridge Creations - the name of his wood shop. 


I am using my featherweight this week to sew some purple scraps. I will be making a post on Saturday about all the purple scraps I have used up this week. I have some spool bits ready to sew.

I have added this post to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday



Mr Lex was trying to be a lap dog and stealing kisses this week. He is a little big for a lap.

  5. What a great case for your featherweight- it is a real beauty. Your family is filled with many talented people. I love the workmanship. If it was a case my dad made, I would think lovely thoughts each time I had the case and machine out.
    Love the purple scraps- I started a purple and black quilt this evening.
