She won't stay long but I'll enjoy playing with her until she sells. Whenever I have time, I like to make at least one complete project on a machine before I re-sell it. That way I work out any bugs, tensions issues, etc. and I feel confident when I tell someone it is in excellent working condition. This machine was very clean and in perfect working order, so not much to do but oil and lube it. The case has a few issues on the bottom which I need to work on.
So this little gal is going to get a new dress. I got the idea that on eBay among dozens of other Featherweights she might pop out if she has a custom made cover for her case - a little added value on the listing. I got started last night and had lots of fun doing machine appliqué with with my Rocketeer. Here are the pieces cut out and appliquéd and ready to sew.
