Without the teddy bear :).
This was the last complete item I made before my sewing machine died. I planned on making several things tonight (valentine's day gift as well as birthday gifts), but since my sewing machine died I will not be making anything else. *sigh* Although I realized that my sewing machine was on its last leg, I really hoped that it would last at least another 6 months. I wanted to wait until we do our taxes and if we got a refund, I would use the money to buy myself a new sewing machine. However, it appears that I will be buying a new sewing machine sooner than I think. I supposed that I should not be upset. I have had the sewing machine for more than 12 years now, and I paid $100 back then. The sewing machine served me well, I am sad that it died and I hope to have a new one soon.
