How To Handle My Handheld Sewing Machine?

ANNIVERSARY SALES and I ended up ordering a few items from Shopee and Lazada.  Actually only 4 items, all free shipping.... even a bottle of raw honey was one of the items I bought!  It was very nicely packed with bubble wrap, weighed at 1kg, the bottle must be heavy, not the honey.... Other than this, I also bought hair dye and a 44 sen spectacle clip and the latest to arrive was this portable sewing machine!

Handheld sewing machine as it is called.... and I have never really used a sewing machine before in my whole life.  I am no good in art and craft, I don't like sewing and now I am wondering whether I could handle this .... gadget...?

The purpose of buying this machine is for my 2-year-old curtains (ooopsss!) which are way too heavy to go into my washing machine.  I was thinking of cutting the curtain into half and then sew it back... so what I need is a good pair of scissors (going to borrow from my friend) and then then sew the edges back.  So my 2 pieces of curtain will become 4 pieces instead once I know how to handle this thingy below..... 

Have anyone use this before?
There is an instruction paper but 
the wordings are wayyyyy too small to read!
Free with these multi color thread, needles etc..etc... 
Needs 4 AA batteries....
Ok, I have everything....
Now... what shall I do..... 
I better try it on a piece of rag first before I cut up my curtains...
Otherwise I might end up buying new curtains!

  1. Bought something similar few years back from weekend market bazaar. Used once and now collecting dust. Lol.

    Good luck with your sewing.

  3. Does it work? My missus did buy a few like this but I do not think she found them useful. Maybe she tried once or twice and that was it, no more!

  4. Does the hand get tired fast holding it to sew?

  5. Looks like a convenient way to make a quick patch up. :)

  6. Interesting! Quite worth it that they provide so many spools of thread and sewing needles to. Maybe it is more suited for small sewing jobs. Sewing the edges of the curtain boleh kot. I really hate those instructions that come with microscopic print. Must read using magnifying glass. LOL!

  7. I am never good in sewing which is why I do not score well for my Home Economics subject.

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL...
