Nothing Sews like a Bernina!

September 9, 2008

I’ve been communing with my mom’s venerable bernina sewing machine. I’ve been talking for years about figuring out how to re-create my favorite and worn literally to shreds old day pack from college. This might not look much like its on the road to that but many of the construction principles are similar. For example this is the first time I’ve ever used the zipper foot on the sewing machine – something both projects require. I’m even adding to my gadget collection – I have a “piping foot” on order from the local (fabulous) quilting store. So I’m off like a shot into the world of sewing again. Updates will follow.
