Some time during the course of the last couple of years, I decided I need to make a cover for my sewing machine….or machines! Like most of us, I keep putting it on the back burner for later. Sometimes I think we do this because it is for us instead of a gift for someone else.
Having a fabric cover is much better than having the hard cover that comes with some machines and is certainly better than using the plastic cover that comes with some machines. I don’t ever use a plastic cover as that will keep moisture inside the cover and on my machine. If you don’t have a cover, use a towel over your machine.
The pictures are just samples of basically what I would like to make. I know I want the cover to tie on the sides so there is less calculations involved!! Also, to be able to use the cover as a mat under my machine when I am using it and have pockets that hang down at the front of my table to put scissors and other sewing notions in that I would use while stitching.
First on my list is to pick my fabrics. Then I will decide about the pockets. If I choose a fabric that I really like and want to see, I may not want to have pockets that cover up the fabric.
Second will be to draw up a pattern to fit a specific machine. That’s enough to do for now!
See you soon,
