The Cocorico Bee has just started our second round! We make paper pieced blocks for eachother based on a theme chosen by the “queen bee.” This month, Erin chose sewing machines as her theme with an emphasis on vintage machines. She shared a picture of a Little Lady sewing machine and it stole my heart! It’s a 1950 child’s sewing machine and it is so adorable.
This is an image of the machine shared with permission from Thoughtful Vintage on Etsy. When I first looked at the images of this machine, I thought it was a cherry red color but after looking a bit more, I see that it was described as pink and some of the machines were lighter in other photos and did appear more pink. Call my cherry red version, artistic license.
I had so much fun designing and sewing this block for Erin. I finished it up as a pdf pattern and you can find it in my Craftsy and Etsy shops. It does have a fair number of pieces but it is very doable–just expect it to take a few hours to put together.
