    Roughneck sewing machine case

    ok...I got a request about my case but I thought there might be others who'd like to see my 'new' sewing machine case.

    As you can see the RR case is an ugly green...hence the new cover for it and I thought it would be fun to decorate it with sewing pics. I don't know if you can make out the text sign I put under the machine head but it reads 'My power tool uses thread!" I want to get it painted under the machine head as soon as I can find a font I like and I want to paint the lid black! I really had fun making it and it is wide enough to hold my Husqvarna (and subsequently my Bernina and Janome). DH is going to attach it to a small hand truck so I'll be able to move it around easily. I made this to use as I want to go to the 'open sewing' at the quilt shop near me. I have 4 other pics I want to send so I will do that in another thread. I don't know if it will be good to send in one entry. BTW it's an 18gal. case.

    Great art project. I love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    That's so cool and definitely one of a kind. Do you mind sharing where you got the sewing machine design from? I am looking for one to frame so thanks for sharing.

    The machine was freehand. Not hard to do. It is approx. 14"x 9" tall at the widest areas of the black part of the machine. The hand wheel at it's tallest is about 5 1/2" x 2". Hope this helps!
