|Sewing on a Treadle Machine|
Another cold January day;
a perfect time to do some sewing
on my old Singer Sewing Machine.
This old treadle sewing machine
really takes me back.
I learned to sew on one just like this.
I never have any trouble with it,
stitches & tension are always good.
Today I made Flour, Sugar, Coffee, Cornmeal, & Tea Sacks.I wanted to use material bigger than a sheet of paper, so, I couldn't print directly onto the material. I ironed the material, & cut laminating plastic, peeled off the back & adhered to the back side of material, making sure it was flattened down good. I layed a sheet of paper on top of material & cut around it with sissors. My printer is set to print face down, so I placed the material down with the laminating plastic side up. I printed at least three labels on each piece of material. It printed great. I sprayed the labels with Scotchgard Fabric Protector, pealed off the plastic & let material dry. Then I layed material, print down on my ironing board & ironed on Thermo Web Heat Bond to the back, after it cooled, I pealed off the paper & cut out my labels, then ironed them onto my sacks. They turnd out pretty good. Hope you find something you love to do on this cold January day.
