    I would like to make a cover for my Brothers Quattro6000D Embroidery machine but havenít found a pattern large enough. Has anyone got any ideas? I would like for it to somehow cover it with the embroidery unit attached.

    Saw this interesting and easy to sew pattern at the Moda Bake Shop:

    You might need to measure your machine and improvise the pattern to fit yours.

    I made one for my embroidery machine by sewing first a cover out of cheap muslin. Ajusted and resewing until it fited, then cut it apart and so I had a pattern.

    If I were to make a cover, it wouldn't have looked that good.

    Here's the one I made for my machine. I just measured the height, width, and length of the machine, the width across the top, and the length from the bottom of one side, across the top and the length down the other side. Then I drafted my own pattern on some brown paper. For each piece I cut out the fabric, batting, and lining (pink check), put them together, did some FMQ, and then sewed with wrong sides together. Then sewed some bias binding on all seams. Easy-peasey :!:

    That cover is so cute. Love it. wished I had covered my Designer one to keep it nice and clean but there it sits colecting dust but since it is always out and ready to use, It is very handy.

    :-D :-D :-D Mine is made in 2 parts. One part fits over the embroidery arm and the other part goes over the machine. It almost looks like a truck with out tires. :lol: :lol: :lol: The one on the Brother machine has pockets on the ends and the embroidery machine is on the right side with the yellow thing that has a jar embroidered on it. The jar has buttons in it and yes the buttons are real ones. Huggies, Fay

    It's on the right side, the one wiht the yellow thing that has a jar embroidsered on it

    I want to make one for my 6600 where I don't have to lower the thread thing each time. Because I always forget to put it back up when I start sewing. Has anyone made one like that?

    Love the shoe! I made a new cover for my sewing machine. I took a long time to decide on the pattern and the fabric. A month after I made it, I bought a new machine, and of course it doesn't fit. And the fabric is discontinued.

    That's very cute and it doesn't sound too difficult. Think I will give it a go this weekend. Thanks!

    This is such a cute and cheerful pattern in your sewing room!

    I actually signed up for a sewing machine cover class in my LQS. With all your wonderful ideas, I think I can give that class a miss! :-)

    I love your cover, granny, so much nicer than the old tablecloth that covers my embroidery machine.

    Hello Granny
    Love your machine cover, it's cute
    Here is mine, made in two parts for Brother Innov-is 4000D recently made from bag pattern
    I made original cover and underskirt, then found that the embroidery unit caught up the with skirt when attached because of the height difference on bench, so made another piece and herringbone stitched two skirt pieces together, cross-hatched in wrong direction of add-on piece :roll:
