Sewing that's Retro, Geek, and Chic

Is It Just Me…

… 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:

RAWR! I’m a Sewasaurus Rex with a tiny top hat!

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.

    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!)

    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.)
