Project Restyle // Sewing Machine


Hello!! Sorry, it's been a while. Thank you for such an amazing response to my room tour post. Even though I've posted a new post, it's still getting so many views - we might be headed for a record. Thank you so much.
Today I've got a new project restyle. My sewing machine!!! I never really liked the pattern (see before pic) that my sewing machine came with and it didn't suit my room. I thought it would be really easy to personalise it and it was.

I printed out a pattern that I drew a while ago, covered in watermelons onto some Avery Sticker Paper. Then I used the old sticker pattern to trace onto the pattern. I cut out the holes for the knobs and buttons then stuck it on
The only tricky bit was lining in up with the machine - sticker paper can be a pain sometimes, but I got it on, and I think it looks wonderful.
So now these pretty watermelons have inspired me, I've got a sewing craft for you next time. I'll warn you, it's a pencil case again, but I'll promise you it's a bit more quirky than the last one.
What have you restyled before?

P.S. Don't you just love the extra little watermelon on the hand wheel. It looks so pretty!!

  4. Wow, that's super, super neat! I have to admit that the sewing machine with the watermelon design is a lot more better than the flowers one. It's very kawaii! You really are one amazing and creative girl. :) xoxo Morning
