It's Childs Play...

Or was it?

Singer Made these Sweet Childrens Sewing Machines
in the 1950's

They were well made, and fully functional


They had numbered thread guides...

(you can click any phot0 to see a larger image)


They only had a top thread,
but made a sturdy chain stitch.



Complete with the Singer Emblem



I'll bet many a well dressed Dolly
had a Mom with one of these :-)


Today I am joining Suzanne at The Colorado Lady
For Vintage Thingie Thursday



Thanks For Stopping By,

That is a very nice sharing of the old children sewing machines. You still see them around antique malls, but they are rather expensive.

I wish I had one of those when I was young and interested in sewing doll clothes.

What a thrill it would have been to have one of those as a girl. I had one that didn't work that well and only managed to frustrate me. That is just gorgeous. What a great thing to have to look at. (or use)

I have a pink child's sewing machine in my sewing room! Haven't worked in that room for over two years. Broke my arm the summer before last, and spent most of last summer going to the hospital. Now I'm curious to see if mine has the numbering system for threading. I just got it for "decoration". Thanks so much for sharing. ♥♪
