How to Make LEGO Sewing Machines (links included)

Having four kids ( three of them boys) my life has been FULL of LEGO.

My oldest son who is 32 is a LEGO master.  While my other kids have dabbled in the brick, none of them had as much as Matthew.  I kept his collection of bricks for years.  When he asked for them, I was pretty happy to load the huge Rubbermaid bin of them up and haul them from VA to OK for him to share his love of building with his sons :o)  I have a soft spot in my heart for the bricks and also for sewing.

So this morning, I came across the most fabulous  LEGO miniatures sewing set that features a seamstress with a LEGO treadle machine repairing Superman's cape, I was smitten. The treadle, the red glasses the cape...there is even a sweet cat included!  How awesome is this collection!?!

It made me think about all of the various LEGO sewing machines I have adored viewing on blogs and could not help but throw together some of my absolute favorite LEGO sewing machines by some really amazing designers and their talented kids! 

Janelle from Emmaline Bags has this colorful and useful machine!

Riel from The Q and the U made a sweet Elna machine!

Erika Mulvenna from Miss Sews It All made this brilliant Bernina! 

Carrie Bloomston made this wonderful little machine!

And this treadle found on Brickshelf under Singer

Denise Starck from Quiltmaker's son made his very own sewing machine

I love this very customized one by Monsterbrick on Flickr!

Loving this one by Betz White's son complete with sewing warriors!

There is also a fun set from LEGO that has everything you need for an entire sewing room!

With so much inspiration, I am hopeful that the in-house 13 year old will take pity on me ( I am not LEGO talented) and make one or more of these delightful creations for me to add to my sewing room but do not think I will hold my breath.
