    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.
    After 2 years with the same signature I have been requested to remove it. Bye

    Dody, those are SO pretty!! I made covers for mine, but they're ugly and utilitarian...
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Very nice covers. Love the black and while fabric.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    You gave me an idea. I have a cover for my smaller machne but it's just plain.I use leftover blocks that aren't perfect, or blocks I practiced on for totes. Never thought of using them on my sewing machine covers.

    I agree! sure beats the heck out of the ugly plastic covers I have on my machine Oh Well...my sewing area is in the basement so they'll be ok....at least until I'm all done with ALL the other projects I have going.
