This sewn up sewing machine is so incredible! Made by artist Danny Mansmith, who has a history and a personal connection with the sewing machine as a means to make his art.
You have to check out his website and read his thoughts about art, and the inspiration behind creating things with your own hands.
Danny says, “My favorite sweater was one my grandma made out of a towel and embroidered a D. on it.”
Danny also says, “I love bad sewing. When you see something put together really roughly, you see—despite the individual’s apparent lack of skill and perfected technique—creativity.”

wow. fp girl you show us somthin’ & blow me away frequently( I’m
so glad you’re out there looking for us) but this guy is after my own heart. Thank you. It’s funny, I know that sometimes we would not
really relate to some of the people we see and meet online, but sometimes I am so grateful to see something and go, yeah, I know what that’s like. exactly. Anyway, I love his sewing machine. I’ve
had a few around just to draw and look at, not the ones I use.
Thanks again, Love, Chloe C.

Hi Chloe! Thanks so much for your kind words. I’m so glad other people are loving all the great inspirations we find online.
I know what you mean about relating to people online that you might not otherwise. It’s kind of like you get to read people’s minds. Maybe we would all have better friends if we could read minds!
