I even tried making a pair of trousers for a toy once, but I was young and didn't quite understand clothing construction. It was just two tubes of cloth sewn together at the crotch, no way for it to go higher than where her legs met, and after one more attempt at getting it to fit right I gave up and threw it away.
I didn't have my first experience with a sewing machine till high school, and even then it was just the brief construction of an oven glove in home economics.

Most of the modern ones are simple, pink, plastic devices that look disposable and kinda pathetic. It looks like it'll go from new and expensive to depressing car-boot fodder without much space in between.

There are loads of toy sewing machines on eBay and I've been watching a few of them out of curiosity. Do I need one? No. But do I want one? Heck yes!
What do you guys think? Would you buy a toy sewing machine for your kids? What about yourself? Do you think I should?
