    Here are two I made for a gift and one for charity. My sewing machine covers are quite plain but do the trick to keep the dust off.

    Why not just take measurements of your machine and make an upside down "tote" to put over it? Just do not put any handles on it like you would a tote. This is one project I do not think you need a pattern for what you have in mind. Good luck, take care.

    Sewing Machine Covers

    When I made the two Janome MC10001 covers, I took the measurements of the hard cover and just designed the covers using the embroideries and some patchworking and buttons from Dress up Buttons and my stash.

    The machine embroidery designs I used on my Sisters cover are designs from Martha Pullen's Yesteryear CD and also from her online Embroidery Club, Years 2002, 2004 and the Bonus Alphabet from 2003.

    The machine embroidery designs I used on my cover are from Sue Box...Mrs Mouses Sewing Treasures, Cactus Punch SR02..My sewing Room, Sig 38..Sew Much fun and single designs from AuntyM and Sewterrific. I believe the Cactus Punch ones may not be still available as I have had them for many, many years and I think the Cactus Punch designs company sold out to Husqvarna a few years ago. The machine on the front and back of the cover was manually appliqued first and then I added the embroidery designs. I embroidered the cotton reel onto the applique and then manually stitched the thread from the spool through the machine. The applique hearts are from the Janome 8000 card No 10 Applique series and I enlarged the heart design. Although any heart applique design would be much the same.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes, I do; in fact, my first project for a new machine is often a quilted cover. I found a pattern in a library book called "Quilting 101" which turned out to be a bit demanding, but after making a dozen or so, I think I've got it down pat.

    The Log Cabin was the first one I made and I followed the directions precisely. Later I changed the blocks to the Spool pattern, the Square in a Square and the Churn Dash. The last one in shades of beige was made for a Bernina 930 and I had to add an extra row of blocks to give it the length it needed to cover the bottom. For one of my machines, I added an opening at the top for a handle. It's been fun making them for my babies and I've even given a few of them away.

    Hope this helps.

    Kitchen Aid Mixer Covers

    I believe it was Oregon Patchworks I heard that had the pattern of the Kitchen Aid mixer pic to put on your mixer cover. They're out there.
