Las Colchas had this bright, happy, sewing notion print-fabrics. My sewing machine makes me happy, so I thought this fabric would be perfect for making a sewing machine cover.
I viewed many tutorials on Youtube, but I found that the Crafty Gemini had the easiest instructions. I love to view Vanessa’s tutorials. She has tutorials on just about anything you can think of making. I made some changes to the instructions by adding a lining made from remnants and scraps. I quilted the cover using masking tape to make my diagonal lines. Vanessa talks about making crisp corners. My corners are a bit mushy but that’s okay. Binding is something I dread since I am awful at making mitered corners. I gave it a shot, and the results were not too bad.
When I was cutting the fabric for the main part, I cut it in the wrong direction. The sewing machine prints were upside down. I did not have enough fabric to re-cut, so I covered the upside-down sewing machines with heart appliques made from the fabric that had the pin print.
Back (with the boo-boo hearts)
It has been raining and dreary for three days. Making this cover made things a bit brighter.
The sewing machine cover has made my Happy Place an even happier room!
