This morning at around 9am, I thought about repairing the 2 pairs of shorts of my son; one that is below the knee and white while the other is grey. I started with the white. I cut out a small white cloth, a ragged excess of the white uniform skirt that I sewed several years ago. I also used our vintage mechanical sewing machine. As you can see from the picture, it has the old - fashioned presser foot and behind that is the presser bar lifter. I really enjoy sewing. I remember the costume of a doll I made when I was in grade 6 elementary. The costume was a female native of Rwanda. My son thanked me after the repair and now he is wearing the grey shorts. Can you sew? I can.

@DianneN our machine has the foot pedal, and yesterday, i actually pedaled with just my right foot. my sister wants to buy that small sewing machine but online. i told her there are tendencies that items bought online might not be as good and durable as those actually bought in department stores.
