It’s Sew LEGO® | Quilty Pleasures Blog

I’m sure many of you have heard about Pinterest and wasted whiled away many an hour perusing the ideas and inspiration out there. Quiltmaker has it’s own set of Pinterest boards that you can check out to see what inspires us. One recent picture on our Sew Cool board caught my eye.

This LEGO® Bernina version was made by Miss Sews-it-all who was inspired by Carrie’s version over at Suchity Such. Apparently there is a lot of LEGO stuff going on over at Carrie’s house!

As the mother of an 11-year-old boy who LOVES LEGOs®, I knew I had to ask him to make one for me. He is the grandson of a mechanical engineer and the son of a designer, so I should have known it would not be a simple reproduction of the original. Must make it bigger, better, more structurally sound, over-engineered, over-designed, etc., etc.

My son was SO excited about what he’d created when he presented it to me and I was beaming with pride and joy when I saw it.

My son’s LEGO® sewing machine

My version has a computer keypad, feed dogs and space for multiple spools of thread. He wanted me to know that he had to dig deep for the spool pieces and that the silver hand wheel piece was his only one. Guess that makes me pretty special in his eyes!
