Here are two craft memories from Mum's place, the felt eeyore I made when I was 17, and in the background, the sewing machine I learned to sew on. It is an old singer knee-treadle machine, it just did straight stitch, but it was fantastic. You could successfully adjust the tension on it which is more than I can say for the next machine I had! My sisters and I made loads of things on this machine, clothes for toys, clothes for ourselves, patchwork-esque things, collages. The eeyore is from The Pooh Craft Book, I don't have it anymore but I think this might be it here. Actually, it was a great book and I had a lot of fun making all the toys in it.
