Can't stop making stamps!

OK, I should be sewing and I have - really! But I've been cutting up my foam placemat for more stamps too!
I've wanted a simple sewing machine stamp with a whimsy style. I've been doodling here and there and am happy with this one that evolved from a few of my sketchings.
It is one of the larger images that fits onto a peanut butter lid. I had to take my exacto knife to the edges of the lid because the raised rim interfered with getting a good solid image when I pressed the inked shape.
When making the sewing machine stamp I had to remember to reverse the image so an accurate portrayal would be achieved, which got me wondering . . . Are all the sewing machines out there made for right handed people? I think they are!
Have you ever seen a sewing machine made so the foot adjuster is on the left had side of the machine?
The inspiration for this witchie hat below should be obvious, I'm making a pieced witch hat for Jane's Spooktackular Block Swap.
The stars were made for business cards I had with my personal family's blog address written on it (below) then stamped with the stars.
The M is a stamp I made to sign some of my artsy work or packages.
And cupcakes are pretty popular, so I made one of those too!

To my family that may swing by my blog:
Hey! It was fun to see you all at the reunion this past weekend!
I look forward to our reunions every summer especially now that I have a child. I love my family and want to make sure Urban gets the same great childhood I had by being close to family.
Love you all, keep in touch and see you next year if not sooner!

Stamping is fun. I've thought of that too. A sewing machine is so right sided! I did an applique backwards once of a sewing machine. It ended up in the trash because it was wrong. Oh well.
