Lego sewing machine and packaging and instructions. Done for a friend to be given as Christmas gifts. Original Lego Sewing Machine design and instructions from Carrie Bloomston of Such-designs.com.
Are these instructions available for purchase, or is there a complete kit available?
There’s a link there to the page with the original instructions (http://suchitysuch.blogspot.ca/2012/05/lego-sewing-machine-tutorial.html). They’re free on the Such-designs.com website. There is no kit as far as I’m aware of.
That link appears to just go to Carrie Bloomston’s home page now.
Couldn’t find the instructions there.
The search on the page is a little messed up. I found it again here: http://www.carriebloomston.com/lego-sewing-machine-tutorial/
Is there a link to print the box? The original tutorial does not show or include the packaging.
No, I guess there isn’t. If you give me a day or two, I will add it. Not sure why I didn’t include that…
I wasn’t able to find the box printable. Did I miss it somewhere?
Never mind…right in front of my nose. Sorry.
No problem at all, glad you found it.
Is there instructions on how to fold the box?
NO, but let me just take a look… Basically I took a ruler and a rounded edge instrument (I used the top of finger nail clippers – something solid but that won’t cut through the paper). I laid a ruler from each pair of black lines and pressed down to make it easier to fold on those lines. I missed one at the bottom of the image though it seems. So, press down and make the lines easy to fold along, then I took an x-acto knife and cut the edges and down the left and right of the top image (and the opposite section as well). At that point it becomes a lot easier to see with the whole thing cut out and the shapes folding. The middle section (with Lego Sewing Machine 1794) is four sides and folds into the width of the box, and the other pieces fold down to make the top and the bottom. Try that, see if that works. If you need more detail or anything, just let me know. I’ll see if I can help out. Good luck!
Is there an actual list of the pieces anywhere? I see the visual with the quantity listed but my old lady brain is overwhelmed trying to find these parts on the Lego site!
I’m sorry, I don’t think there is. I’m not the one who built it, I just designed the packaging. Maybe reach out to the person who did the original? http://www.carriebloomston.com/lego-sewing-machine-tutorial/ Certainly seems like that would be a useful bit of information to have!
