Keep It Covered!

Do you bother to cover your sewing machine when it's not in use?

Have you ever had one of those awful plastic covers, that quickly start to tear and become useless?

I've definitely been victim of the latter, which is what originally inspired me to write a pattern for a sewing machine cover!

Sewing Machine Cover for Hector!

The affectionately named 'Hector's House' was the first ever cover I made, for my daughter's machine.

Interest grew among my classes and so I developed a pattern for a bespoke cover, where you could take the dimensions of your machine and make a made to measure cover!

Well now this pattern is available to everyone!

Popular Patchwork Jan'16

In the January issue of Popular Patchwork, you get all the details you need to make this cover, which includes a handle opening (again made to measure to your machine's unique measurements) and 2 functional side pockets.

Doesn't your machine deserve to be well 'dressed' and dust free!

The January issue of Popular Patchwork is packed full of great projects, and is out now!

Happy Sewing!

  1. Yeah, another published pattern! Oh, and I love the quilt on the cover!

  2. Brilliant! The cover that came with my machine is pretty good if not unattractive looking, maybe I will put a cover on my list of things to do (for next year!).

  3. Congrats!!! What a great cover, one of these days I must make one for my machine. Thanks for the inspiration.

  4. All lovely covers :-) Will need to see if I can find that mag around these parts.

  5. Lovely! I adore your covers and maybe it is time to make one for mine!
