Brother LX-3125e Sewing Machine Review

I am so envious when I watch shows like Project Runway and dream about being able to sew and make fashionable clothes for my little ones. Unfortunately, I never learned to sew but recently decided it was time to give it a good faith try.

Brother International Corporation has a complete line of sewing machines that are perfect for everyone from beginners to advanced sewers. I had the opportunity to review the stylishBrother LX-3125e Sewing Machine that is perfect for beginners, like me. It is very compact and lightweight so it doesn’t take up a lot of space and can be stored easily when not in use. When I first saw the cute Fashion Faces feature (3 decorative skins), I immediately thought this would make a great gift idea for a teenager or young lady who is just learning to sew. I was amazed at all the features included with this model since it was so affordable at only $79.97. My favorite feature is the very easy to use automatic bobbin winding system. The main reason I stopped trying to sew in the past was because I could never figure out the complicated bobbin system but this model almost threaded itself. It also includes a full assortment of accessories, has a built in sewing light, blind hem stitch, 4 step buttonholer and a free arm for sewing cuffs and sleeves. This model is perfect for basic sewing and mending. My first project was to fix my son’s beloved and ripped Spiderman costume that he would literally wear 24 hours a day if we let him. I had it sewn in minutes and was able to choose between 14 built in stitches and 35 stitch functions. My first effort wasn’t pretty but it sure was mended perfectly and has not torn since. My Spiderman thought I had “saved the day.” After watching the instructional DVD that is included with this Brother LX-3125e Sewing Machine, my next project was to make a doll outfit for my daughter’s new baby doll and this turned out much prettier than my first effort. I was able to make a basic shirt and pants set with a matching baby blanket and I had a blast making it….my confidence really soared. It was even fun to have my daughter, who is 4, also take an interest in sewing and ask if she could help.

Purchase the Brother LX-3125e Sewing Machine for only $79.97. You can also check out the entire line of Brother Sewing Machines available at Walmart.
