    decorative decals for sewing machines

    Does anyone know of a source for the decorative decals for sewing machines? I have searched using google and haven't located the vinyl ones you can remove. I saw a machine that looked so fun with the decals. The lady had cut them herself with some kind of vinyl cutter. I need the ready to stick kind.

    Thank you

    I've seen the decals for the older Singers on ebay. They were pretty expensive, though. I wonder if you can find some at an auto parts store? I'd love to decorate my older machines. I think it would be fun to steam punk a machine.

    Good Luck!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    I did a search on Amazon for "floral vinyl decals" and came up with these:

    A search on "vinyl decals sewing machine" came up with these:
    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...sewing+machine

    You can cut out individual flowers, etc. from the larger decals.

    Thank you for all of your help. I think it would be fun to do something to make my travel machine standout, easier for me to locate as well.

    Look at window cling decals. They are more size friendly and a great assortment are available.

    Search for "sewing machine skin" or "decorative skin" and you may well find some custom fitted to your machine make and model.

    A friend gave me some removable vinyl florals from Vera Bradley! They are on my travel machine!

    Hope I am not mistaken, but I saw some decals especially for Bernina machines in a Bernina booth at a quilt show recently.

    My daughter-in-law makes amazing vinyl images on her Cricut. If you have one or know of someone who has one it's possible to do this. Give it a try.
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    I had a gal make a vinyl fairy for mine and a beautiful daffodil flower. I put it on about 3 years ago and it still looks like I just did it. She can make anything in so many colors.

    I was going to suggest Urban Elementz, as the owner is a friend of mine. I don't know if they are removable, but she has some gorgeous machine "tattoos". I have a gorgeous pink hibiscus on one of my Berninas.

    On Ebay, use "Singer Decals". There are several kinds, true to model numbers of vintage singers.

    I bought the butterflies. Haven't put them on my machine yet! Now comes the placement...stress abounds when you lack creativity.

    If you have a cameo or cricut you can use that to cut out your own vinyl designs. I cut some out when I first got my cameo and put them on my laptop. I never considered putting them on a sewing machine though
