A Sewing Machine
Before the invention of the sewing machine. women had to stitch all their clothes by hand. The sewing machine not only eased the burden of stitching clothes but also speeded up the pace of dressmaking. A typical sewing machine looks like this. It has a slim body of a standing cat. Only it does not have a tail, instead, there are a few levers through which a thread is passed to the needle below. And its head is made up of a wheel on which a handle is attached. On the top is small rod-like projections on which the reel of the thread is placed. Below the lever of the needle is a small platform through which tiny teeth project outside. Two pieces of cloth are placed on this platform below the lever of the needle. And the wheel on the other end is moved at a fast pace. The teeth move the cloth forward and the up and down motion of the needle and the thread pierces the cloth. Thus stitches of the machine are evenly placed. These stitches are two-sided because underneath the toothed platform of the machine there is a small pocket. In it, there is a tiny bobbin. This also has a length of thread rolled onto it. So when the cloth on the platform is pierced by the needle, this bobbin also pierces the cloth, complementing the needle stitches. Thus joining the pieces of the cloth to form a dress.
