I bought this little Elna Opal a couple of weeks ago. It's the first sewing machine I have ever purchased. I've had a loan of my mother-in-law's for a while but haven't ever really sewn much. So when I thought it would help with little craft projects I decided to go for something really simple. It only does running stitch and zigzag!! I'm still getting used to it.
Some french knots on the bottom of a little bear I made on the machine, but I'm so bad at sewing that I couldn't work out how to finish it off, and so I hand stitched along the bottom seam.
I don't know why she hasn't got any arms, I think it was too difficult. Hopefully the next one will be better!! It's a learning curve and that is supposed to be good for someone my age (grandmother age...but a young grandmother, really!)
