Helloooooo Kitty!

20 Feb

I always have a really hard time deciding on what I want for my birthday. If I want it, I usually figure out a way to get it. So, by the time my birthday rolls around, I’ve already gotten everything I wanted. But this year, I figured it out early. So, when Boyfriend asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said “HELLO KITTY!!!” Okay. It wasn’t that dramatic. And I actually said, “A new sewing machine. That happens to have Hello Kitty on it.” So, being the kind and generous man that he is, he agreed to help make it happen. I “accidentally” ordered it early. So, happy early birthday to me!  (For the record, my birthday isn’t until March.)

Behold! Hello Kitty! Image

I know what you’re thinking. “How old are you turning? 12?” Well, the answer is, waaaaaay older than 12. But I’m really immature for my age. Plus, did you even look at her?? Just go look at her one more time.

Anyway. My old machine is a 1972 Bernina Record 830 and I do love her so. I will continue to use her, of course. But there are some things my beautiful old Bernina can’t do. Or I can’t figure out how to do (actually, I’m just too lazy to figure it out). Like button holes. Plus, Hello Kitty Janome has a flower stitch! And I can do smocking! And THREE DIFFERENT one step button holes! The button holes are amazing! You just stick your button in the back of the button hole foot and Hello Kitty does the rest! Push the pedal down and she beeps at you when she’s done. I couldn’t believe it either. I might just be impressed with computerized machines because I’ve never used one, but I am really very impressed with this adorable machine. I was worried that it would be only that: adorable. But I think she will suit me very well.

I even made some new pillowcases today with her. Image

I had a little trouble finding a walking foot that I thought would fit her. But I ended up ordering this Distinctive 7-Piece set from Amazon. I was worried I had ordered wrong, but after I figured out how to attach it, it worked great! I’m so happy!

Also, I accidentally ordered some fabric I have been wanting for a while with my tax return. Oops.

I could look at that all day long.

In case you were wondering, the Janome 18750 looks great from the back too.
