I have looked at typewriters and secretly coveted one for a long time - though I really had no specific use for one - I just wanted it. Then the other day while wandering through my favorite vintage store "Nostalgia" I came across this one and knew it had to come home with me!
I think it was the color that got to me. I thought that we girls could all use it but my oldest DD immediately decided that this was NOT something to be shared - she HAD to have one of her own. Luckily I had happened to notice another one at the store (only $25!!!) and so we quickly returned to get her one of her very own.I have since received many sweet notes painstakingly typed and you can hear the "tap tap" of the keys at all hours of the morning and night. Who knew such a simple object could bring such happiness?? She has even started typing her homework! Got to love it.
Last weekend I took some down time and made another bag - this time specifically ordered by a friend.
She picked out the fabrics so all I had to do was put it together and it came together quite nicely :o) You can't really see in this photo but the top side of the straps are the black fabric. Good job Sherrie!
At the moment I am trying to whip together some little things for my DD's for Easter. I'll show you if they get done!
