Okay hi guys, I'm super new here but everyone seems proactive so I feel it's okay to ask about........sewing.

Haha yea, I saw a super cute sewing machine and it's so MINI!
It's a handheld sewing machine, that kind you can put in your bag.

I never sewed to begin with, and I just wanted something super affordable to know if I like sewing.

Anyone has user experience to share?
I'd like to know if it's practical enough to give me a taste of sewing.


Have a good day y'all :joy:

English is complicated

Mrs Elixir used to sew professionally, so she has some great machines.

I find those handheld ones work "okay" if you want to see what it's like to make a thing. But because it is less tuned for tension, it will not make a great garment since the seams will sometimes be loose, sometimes tight. For that a simple desktop model is needed. The real machines will also go more rapidly and are easier to hold straight.


But if you want to try, and make, say, a halloween costume, it is a cheap way to try and would be fun.
Pin your pieces together well, because it's hard to hold things straight with a hand-held.
