    Sewing machine cover . . . I need a pattern.

    I'd like to make a cover for my sewing machine to keep the dust off. Does anyone have a pattern?

    I have a pattern that I purchased years ago at my LQS, also have one I purchased from Ebay for my featherweights. There are alot out there and alot of them are free. Just do a search for sewing machine cover pattern and I think you will be agle to find what you are looking for. Good luck have fun and happy sewing.

    I just measured my machine and then cut 2 ends that would cover it and cut a straight piece of fabric that would fit up and over the machine and then quilted these pieces and sewed them together. I had to make a couple cuts for wires, but that was easy. I cut and then folded back the edges and stitched. Hope that helps. If you want something more interesting you could piece the cover first.

    I also was looking on the internet for one a few days ago. I also need to make actually two. I found some different ones, but at the moment couldn't find my patterns, but one lady said she measured hers by how tall, and how wide, and then the piece that would go over the sides and top, and she added 2 inches to those measurements so it would fit loose enough when she went to put it over her machine. I haven't made one so I don't know how exact that is. I hope you find one that will work for you.

    I saw an idea for a machine cover, maybe on QB? You get one of the very large fabric like grocery bags that fits over your machine. You put it down over your machine and fold up the extra length to the outside and pin. You cut off the handles and stich pocket lines up the fold up portion around the bag. The bag then is put back down over the machine and the pockets the extra fabric created on the outside are for your foot control, cord etc. Quick, handy and easy enough for me.

    I take an old t-shirt lay it flat, cut across the chest, this gets the arm holes, turn right sides together, stitch across, and viola put it over your machine.

    I guess I am very thrifty. Since machines come in different sizes to begin with, why buy a pattern.

    I did like treasureit and measured my machine back to front. Then I cut that piece and made the side pieces to fit [you can use freezer paper or muslin if you feel the need for side patterns to accomodate the curves.] I used prequilted fabric because I wanted to get my cover made asap.

    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    Once you find a patterns, perhaps might be a good time to practice FMQ.

    I got a great simplicity patterns at Joann's, machine cover, serger, and more. And, I picked it up do 99 cents when they were on sale, so if you have access to a Joann's, (or order online) .... Simplicity patterns go on sale frequently at Joann's

    I've searched and searched but I've lost it. I downloaded the pdf for Bernina's machine cozy back in '08. This is the cover I made for it back then. I wish I could find the pdf! It must be on the hard drive that died 2 years ago.

    I added an outer pocket to one side. It's just the right size to hold the table. The other side of the cover has a pocket that holds a bobbin saver full of my Bernina bobbins.
