Sewing that's Retro, Geek, and Chic
… or do other people also see a dinosaur head when they look at a modern sewing machine?
No, I… I don’t smoke. Why do you ask?
Anyway, I’ve been looking at sewing machines with a different eye this week, and I’ve always vaguely thought they look like dinosaurs. But since I’m usually only looking at the needle area of whatever machine I’m using, I haven’t really “backed up” and consciously studied the overall shape in a while.
Today, I drew this random sketch:
Can you tell I’ve spent a few days sewing machine shopping? I think I need to clean up the sketch (maybe add a bow tie) and put it on a t-shirt, hehe.
I totally see a dino head! And I love your sketch. Bowtie: YES!
Yay, I’m so glad I’m not the only one who sees the dino head! I’m glad you like it – thanks! =)
YES THIS NEEDS TO BE ON A SHIRT!!! I think that’s just brilliant!
Alrighty, it will be a shirt in my zazzle store soon. =)
And thanks – I’ll take “brilliant” over “crazy” any day!
This is so funny – lol here!
lol – thanks!
Brooke, I officially hate you, I can no longer look at a sewing machine without thinking “Big head, little arms”….I often see modern machinery as dinosaurs but never saw one when I looked at my beloved Kenmore Elite, now I am seeing her as one.
lol – so sorry! I’m afraid it’s a contagious affliction I have – I see faces in all sorts of things. (btw, that is one of the best movie quotes EVER – makes me laugh every time!)
I forgot to say, that the thread spool as a top hat is just the perfect embellishment. LOL…all is forgiven can’t wait to see the tee.
So true! (And I can’t believe your other sewing machine lasted so long! That was probably the best $300 investment you’ve ever made.)
Yes, that machine definitely paid for itself many times over before it died!
