Lego Sewing Machine: Husqvarna Emerald 183

 The other day a quilting/blogging friend Rosa posted a picture of a little Lego sewing machine on Facebook.  The picture was from this blog called Such Designs from a couple of years ago.  Well, that was all the inspiration I needed to see if I could replicate my own machine in Lego.  I mean it's March Break, and me and the boy are just hanging out having fun anyway ...

 ... So, see it sitting on my machine above!!!  I am such a geek, I looooove it.
 Here it is closer.  Our Lego collection is a big combo of a million yard sale bits and pieces plus some recent Star Wars Lego acquisitions.  It was fun to dig through to see what would work for all the parts.
 I thought it was funny to add a little speedometer gauge to the computer screen part of the machine!  It is from some Lego spaceship or something.  But maybe some sewing machines could really use one.  I am sometimes guilty of sewing a little fast.
 This cracks me up too.  It is a little Lego saw which I thought made a perfectly scaled rotary cutter!  Eli and I were laughing over that.
And here's everything together: sewing machine, rotary cutter, extra thread ... and oh, what's that?  A little wine glass?  Hee, hee.  All set to sew!

I hope those who are on March Break are enjoying it.  And sorry, but I had to put the Word Verification on my comments back on as I was getting spam galore! :-(

Maybe my boys would be more interested in my quilting if I did this! Your little machine is wonderful!

Brenda said...

I love your sewing machine!!! Way to cute!
And just think, I had lego when it was only squares and rectangles and had fun with that!! The shapes and things they have now, way to much fun!!! Now remember, when sewing, only glass of wine till the project is done - and that lego glass looks about right!! ;-)

Brenda said...

That was supposed to read 'one glass of wine'... hate it when my fingers miss the words I want to type!!

Nice one! Lego is an excellent artistic medium. Taking little coloured squares and rectangles and putting them together to create something lovely....hang on... that sounds a lot like something else we all do...LOL

Yet another wonderful surprise in a week full of delightful quirkiness.

As a huge Lego fan, and a sewist (seamstress? person who sews?), I love it.

I want one of these so badly! It is just the cutest thing. My 4-year-old grandson doesn't have a large enough collection--YET--but I'm pinning this pic for future use!

Rachel said...

Oh Riel, that's awesome! I think you need a bigger wine glass, though ;-)

Love the rotary cutter and the cute little glass of wine, as well!

I'll put a picture of your creation on my Pinterest board, if you don't mind. *s*

It is amazing! I have never seen anything like it.

Kim said...

How fun! My son still has all his legos and even took them to college with him where his roomies had a lego pit. Hey, he is a geeky engineer that is how they roll ;0).
I saw this last year too and thought it was so cool....I'm amazed how much yours looks like your very own machine :0)

Happy Sewing

So cute.
I have enjoyed reading some of your blog post and I'm going to order your book. It sounds very interesting and I love reading books relating to the Maritimes.

Riel Nason said...

Thanks fellow Lego lovers ... I figured there would be quilters like me out there who also loved the creative possibilities of Lego!

@The Witch (I laughed when that name came up) Thanks for your interest in the book!
