Mobile Phone Cosy in Black
I threw this together last night - not my neatest piece of work ever, but I needed to try out the latest acquisition, a 1936 Singer 201K treadle. The treadle belt was a bit slack and slippery, but there's absolutely nothing to complain about with the stitch. The machine is now cleaned up, oiled and gleaming. When I get a new treadle belt on it it should run like a train.
This is the back of the mobile phone cosy. Once the phone is inside you can pull the elastic over to the front to keep the flap down.
We saw the machine out at the front of a second hand furniture shop on Saturday. It was an instant purchase - a 201K treadle in good condition is not to be sniffed at. The car was parked a few yards along the road and two young lads from the shop lugged the machine along the pavement and heaved it into the boot. One of them was really interested in the machine and said he was sad to see it go. I promised to make him something on it, so this mobile phone cosy is for him, complete with his initials.
