Handheld Sewing Machine

I have a cupboard full to bursting of projects I’ve collected to do blogs on. When I buy these things I fully intend to do the blog right away. Sometimes I even do. But most of the time they end up consigned to the cupboard never to be seen again.

Recently I culled the contents of that cupboard, and moved what projects I kept to somewhere most visible in the hopes that I’d see them and be reminded.

One of the things I found was this.

I have absolutely no idea when I bought this. Or how much it cost. I do remember though that these things have pretty awful reviews.

It seemed decent enough on first opening. It came with a nice selection of tools, including an almost full rainbow of thread.

The snips looked a little bit mucky, but they’re pretty good. Nice and sharp.

And then I took the machine itself out of the bubble wrap.

Maybe it has fabric in it for display purposes. Or demonstration. But I suspect it was a return that was just send back out without checking.

Let’s give it the benefit of the doubt, put batteries in it and see what happens.

What happened was that the thing had a life of its own! It didn’t matter whether I switched it on or off, or locked it on or off, it just kept going. Occasionally it would stop for a few moments. Lull you into a false sense of security. Then it’d be off again like a wild animal.

So that immediately went in the bin.

Time to go back to the shelf of forgotten blog projects.
