This is Libby. I’m a sucker for anything “Statue of Liberty”! She has a statue of Liberty decal on her base and her motor. Libby is a Free-Westinghouse, made in Japan sewing machine from the late 1950’s. She sews a straight & a zigzag stitch. Free doesn’t mean she was free, Mr. Free made sewing machines. She has been thoroughly clean and re-wired and now purrs like a kitten.
Libby’s case arrived a bit smashed. It is made of wood, so I decided to try to mend it (what did I have to loses). I reinforced the broken corner using drywall tape and proceeded to decoupage her. I have never decoupaged anything before, but I think I did ok, and now the case has been reborn.
