Wee Brother's House!

Remember Hector's House?

Well here is the 2nd one:

I had separated out the mini charms I got from my friend into brights (used in Hector's House) and low volume, which I've used here.

I teamed them with this lovely yellow linen, which was a dream to work with (which makes me think there is cotton or poly in it!).

And look!

I didn't cower away from another elasticated pocket!  Gold star for me!

I lined this one with some black and white checked brushed cotton. Nice and cosy!

Now it turns out that Wee Brother (so called because the make of the machine is Brother!) is slightly taller than Hector, which I didn't anticipate! Nevermind! It will still fulfil its function very well.

I think that's my run on sewing machine covers finished for a while.  The other machines in class have hard covers, so they will have to be the ugly sisters for a while!

Hope you have a wonderful end to your week!

  3. Ha, love the text on it! Ironically Baby Brother has a hard cover, but Big Brother and Big Brother's Little Brother have soft ones, and I really should make them nice covers!

  10. I really should make my machine a cover, this one, like the other, is really lovely. I also love your crochet projects from the last post. I like the idea of just adding a round or two every year.
