Child's Play

Child's Sewing Machine

Imagine the excitement this mini machine created in the heart of a child on Christmas morning or a birthday. Clearly, the owner took very good care of this beauty.

Did you have a toy that was functional as well as fun?

  1. I have a Singer sewing machine very similar to that one. My great aunt gave it to me when I was a little girl. She said her mother used it to mend clothes during the war.

  6. I did not have functional toys - although I learned to knit and crochet quite young and was given yarn. That little singer is beautiful and the elna behind it has seen alot of love as well. g

  8. I've never seen a child-sized Singer. It must have been a young girl's dream to sit at her own machine and sew like her momma. What a wonderful gift. I don't recall that any of my toys were functional.

  9. I would have loved that little machine as a child. I did a lot of sewing for dolls, but quickly graduated to the adult sized machine when I decided I could make clothes for me too. What a treasure that little Singer is!!

  10. I had THAT sewing machine when I was little.

    Dad also gave me a box of nails and a hammer one year. I had more fun hammering things!

  13. That is so super adorable! I used to have a little loom, I would proudly make my mother pot holders with it. Obviously I didn't know that knitting existed yet.
