Finished Sewing Machine Cover

This project came together SO FAST!!

Yesterday, I had showed that I had the front/back piece all sewed together and ready to be quilted. I decided to FMQ loop-de-loops all over.

I made sure NOT to make my loops too small!


My machine is wider at the base than at the top, so my side pieces had to have a wedge on the front side. I found another brown in my stash to use for the front of the side pieces and also quilted loops on those pieces.


I used my walking foot to sew the quilted pieces together and the first time that I turned it all inside out, it was really big so I stitched to the inside of all of my original stitching to take it all in a little bit. The corners took a little thinking to figure out how to do smoothly (cut notches on the side pieces) but turned out decent!

Here's the shot I took right before I turned it right side out the first time. I was kind of nervous to see what it looked like!


It didn't need trimmed hardly at all (I had cut about an inch or so off from each long side because it was much wider than I needed it to be, but the length was perfect) and I machine bound the raw edge around the bottom with the same fabric that I used on the side pieces.

Here's the finished cover doing its job, or as my husband would say "a hat for the sewing machine."


Start to finish, this project took less than 3 days! It's so nice to work on a small project like this every once in a while!

PS. Don't forget that our first set of seasonal placemats is on sale on Craftsy!

  5. What a lovely machine cover, such a great way to use up some scraps. I made my cover in about three days too. Satisfying, isn't it?
