    I love those and especially like the fabric you used. Did you use a pattern? I really need one--every time I go to sew I have to blow the dust off. Very nice!!

    Well, for now I use some small curtains that we don't use on the windows to throw over all of mine. The curtains are too short for our windows, but they make a useful dust cover. They are bright pink and very ruffley. My aunt gave them to us.
    I like your covers much better! I really, really like the second one, but both are great!
    It's been on my to do list for a while now (to make a real cover). I almost bought a pattern with a pic of an old machine to applique on the front.

    Thank you all! I didn't anticipate so many wanting a pattern. I didn't use a pattern except to measure and copy the cheap plastic covers the machines came with. I did do a lot of googling for instrucions and ended up borrowing a friend's pattern (McCall's Home Decorating #2723 "Sewing Room Essentials" ) but never opened it. I quilted the fabric, so it has nice body.

    BTW . . . my own sewing machine and serger are naked!

    Like these very much. Two of my machines are packed in a box from my move from Western - pretty part - of SD to Denver. Found them today and trying to get organized.
