Ok so my husband is not well known for his DIY or fixing skills. The girls may call him Fix It Daddy but that is because he can fix plastic toys with gaffer tape and change batteries. I call him the Bodge Master. So I was not holding out much hope when dearest husband said he would look at the broken sewing machine. The chances of him fixing it were slim. BUT I'll be darned he has gone and found a bodge that allows the thing to work. It will still need to go for a proper repair but until I can get it to the store at the weekend it will do.
To celebrate I made this cushion cover. It has already been jumped on and used as a camp wall by the two girls so I guess it was a success.
Hooray for the Bodge Master!!!
