    As some were asking I took pictures through the making of the last cover

    I made a pattern out of muslin, this time in one piece instead of three and cut shapes for a fishtank and planed the layout

    the fish and the seashells are made with the embroidery machine, the rest cut out by hand and all glued to the fabric and then appliqued with the sewing machine

    I love it! It was so cute I had to show my granddaughter. She loves it too!

    SulaBug can send it to me after she tires of it, but I have a feeling it's never leaving your house.

    Great job!

    Love the sewing machine cover. I haven't seen the others but I'm going to look them up since you said you posted pics of them. Wish I had the measurements to make a sewing machine cover for my machine. You did an outstanding job on this one.
