Recently I got a compact (small) sewing machine from a yard sale. I don't particularly plan on doing any clothing or household sewing. Then why do I want a sewing machine? To sew on art and crafts, or course! I like to sew on greeting cards, tags, and and other paper creations. Since I recently started making ATCs, I'm looking forward to sewing on them, as well. Here is what my mew used sewing machine looks like.
