Sewing machine cover

6 Comments

(Happy 100th post to me!)

In what seemed a strangely recursive experiment, I used my sewing machine today to sew something for my sewing machine. I made it a cover, in fact!  Following the tutorial from Sparkle Power that I’d been eyeing for months, I used up some of the black and yellow paisley fabric that was left over from making my shoulder/hobo bag.

Being a big rectangle and all, this little cover was pretty easy to sew up.  I spent a crafty afternoon sitting on the floor, cutting and ironing, while listening to my favourite podcasts.  Good way to spend the day.

This is what it looks like untied and flattened.

A couple other angles, for good measure. And because I got a bit shutter-happy.

I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  And thankfully I think my hobo bag and sewing machine cover will be easily able to avoid the fashion faux-pas of showing up to a social event wearing the same thing.  They don’t usually go to the same parties, anyway.

Psssst!  I’m participating in:
