For as much as I use my sewing machine, I felt like it had been collecting a lot of dust. I found a sewing machine cover tutorial on the Sparkle Power blog and it inspired me to make my own. I didn't follow it exactly; I stuck with one fabric on each side, rather than the quilted look. It was really easy to do and took under thirty minutes to create. This could be a great gift for a friend that needs a cover, or just for yourself. Freshen things up a bit.
First, I measured my machine.
|Measuring the width|
|Measuring around the top of the machine|
|Right sides facing|
|Assistance from Simon|
|Pinning the ties 5" from the bottom on each corner|
|Right sides together and prepped to sew|
|Left a 4" opening at the bottom. Cropped corners.|
Flipped outside and pressed the edges.
|Flipped inside out and pressed|
|Both sides together, ties in place...|
|A sewing machine dust cover!|
|It's so purty.|
