Default Sewing Machines All Covered UP!

I finally finished the covers for my sewing machine! After making some totes as Christmas gifts, it dawned on me that if I turn the tote upside down it fit my serger perfectly. The Bernina needed about 3" added to the width & about 6" taken off the length but they were easy to make, easy to take on & off and pretty (if I do say so myself! )

Sounds like you have it figured out-I have a Babylock I have just been throwing a large cloth over but have been wanting to put a sewn cover on. Do you have pictures to share?

Very nice!! I love them; the black and white toile is outstanding!! I would like to make some for my machines, but never get around to it.

Dody, those are SO pretty!! I made covers for mine, but they're ugly and utilitarian...
