BROTHER SEWS

Finally getting around to doing my DIY post for my Brother Sewing machine!This Simplicity SB3129 sewing machine was shipped to me last July '13 as an award for winning the Best Handmade Handbag for IHDA.

It took me awhile to learn how to use this since I am not a big fan of reading manuals and I was very comfortable using my industrial sewing machine.  However, when I finally gave it a try - I realized it was very easy to use and all the computerized buttons weren't that intimidating after all.  This youtube tutorial video I found online helped me get started.

My first project I wanted to do on this machine was a DIY Tool Box Kit to store all the pieces this machine came with.  I had a vintage wooden trunk that needed a facelift and what better way than adding my cute dogs to it?!?  Bang Bang and Boh Boh are my snorkie brothers that were the perfect models for my Brother DIY project.

Now I am very excited to try more projects on this machine.  Next time I will try the embroidery and multiple stitch options.  Thanks Brother for this great machine!  Had to incorporate your Brother at your sidetagline to our image.
