Toy Sewing Machine
When we cleaned out my Dad's house I got this little toy sewing machine. I'm not sure how old it is. It was around when I was young and I always wanted to sew with it but never managed to make it sew even one stitch. It doesn't seem to have a bobbin but maybe it never had one. It needs a good cleaning and then it will look cute in the sewing studio. I tried to take a picture with my hand to show the scale but the camera chose that minute to run out of battery. It is about 7 inches high. Unfortunately the little knob that used to be on the flywheel to turn it is missing. It has gold decorations that may show up more when I clean it. I am wondering if I should use oil or soap and water to clean it. Anyone have any experience with cleaning something like that?
