    I made a cover for my machine many years ago. I put 2 tabs that stick up on the upper corners, to pull it off with. I also have a cut out for the handle to fold up thru the cover, so I can lift it off my table and put it on the floor or in it's case. You can make your own pattern, just measure your sides, top, width, etc. Your really only need 3 pieces probably = front, back and a width that would wrap up over the top from each side.

    amy butler has a free pattern for a machine cover - I made it with her fabric and even use the pockets (I added another set to the back) for thread scissors, seam ripper, my purple thang, and other items that I use every time I use the machine.

    Do you have a link for that? I looked at her website and couldn't find it.

    Wow, that sounds so easy even I could do that. Thanks for the info. I just broke out my new machine today (gave my old one to DGD) so really need a cover to keep it clean. All the covers were adorable

    I'm with you. I would love to make a cover for all my machines but have yet to sit down and make my own pattern for them and haven't thought about looking for a pattern.

    Ok, Ok. I'll make a pretty cover instead of using the old brown polyester I found at my mom's house that I've been throwing over my machines. I'll start it right after I finish the other 462 unfinished projects. LOL, I really love the beautiful covers and now have ideas about how to make nice ones.

    I got a cover with mine but it doesn't cover the table, just the machine. I use it anyway because I sew/embroider everyday so it never gets dusty! At least it keeps the dust off the important parts of the machine & the thread!. :D

    Measure the machine and unit and make your own pattern.

    I guess I am lazy, I just place an old towel over mine. All these adorable patterns may inspire me to really make a nice cover for both my machines.

    Granny, please put your picture in the 'picture section' on the Board so more people can see how beautiful it is - it looks just like a clog, I really like it a lot so much more simple than mine.

    Why make a fitted cover when you can use an attractive quilted throw for the same purpose. I did that when I was practicing blocks and put several together from scraps as a learning process that ended up being a great cover up. I just finished the edges but did not back it. I also purchase table cloths from time to time that are fabric backed vinyl that do a great job as well.

    Here's a simple and quick pattern. Take a large piece of material, you can fold it if you like, drape decoratively over machine. No sewing required. I've been using one like this for a few years now.
