This is me as a child in 1946 and this is my vintage Singer Sewing machine that I made doll clothes on as a child. I loved to make clothes from scraps of fabric for my Storybook dolls, the ones in the Polka Dot boxes! Does anyone remember them? I spent many a summer day cranking that little wheel round and round while feeding the fabric under the foot to make my creations. My what fun I had. I still love to sew today and I'm sure glad that I don't have to hand crank out my sewing projects, what progress we have made in machines, I still have this machine and it is about 58 years old and sits in my sewing room as a great memory of childhood days gone by!
