Last month my husband and I went camping with our kids. It was a miserable time...they're usually good campers, but everything was going wrong that weekend. On Sunday we went to a flea market in a little town near our campsite. I was on the lookout for antique sewing stuff, as always. I found a plastic spool box with some feet and class 66 bobbins. It was cheap, and I figured it would be worth it for the bobbins, which were the old kind and not the new cheap kind that Singer makes currently.
I didn't look too closely at the feet until later. But when I did get down to looking at them, I noticed one that was different.
Is that a zipper foot?
I don't know if it really is or not, but it certainly functions like one. I used it for the first time this morning and installed my first-ever zipper. It was a little fiddly and took two tries, but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
I'll be excited to start making pouches and other little items with zippers. I'm pleased! It doesn't quite redeem the weekend, but it comes close.
