Sewing is one of my biggest hobbies. I recently got ahold of a Singer 241-13, which is an industrial sewing machine built in the the 1940s. It's loud and dims the lights in my apartment when I start it up, but it runs beautifully (thanks to the thoughtful previous owners). I've been using it to make bags.
Currently, I'm working on a knitting bag for my wife. Once I've gotten the design of that down, I'm going to move on to making messenger bags.
