Default Making a Quilted Case for my Featherweight Case

I've been taking my featherweight with me to my weekly "Patches" group sew-ins but I'm worried that my featherweight case will take damage from being packed up and dragged around weekly. Has anyone ever made a quilted cover for your featherweight case? Sounds redundant, but I think I need to make one. I'd love to see pictures.

My case is still in the refinishing stage. There are patterns on the net for cloth bag and also replacement cases. I just take mine in my little rolling luggage case without the case. I did make a quilted cover for the fold up part to protect it. There are patterns for the protective sleeve as well but I just winged mine and used FMQ practice pieces. Sweet little machine in her table!

Sorry, I don't have a picture - but yes, I made bags for all of my featherweights. The cases are made of wood and are so old, that I just don't trust them. My step-mom picked one of hers up by the handle and the bottom fell out of it. Thankfully it was only only a few inches off the ground when it fell apart.

This is the link to the pattern that I used: https://singer-featherweight.com/col...nt=18332802563

I modified it slightly - I made it so the top and bottom are zipped together. I also did not put the hole in the top for the handle.

This is a pattern I too will consider for my 221.

I have a carry-on suitcase that I use for my FW. My husband modified it by adding pick and pluck foam so there is a cut-out for the machine to sit in. Then there is a cut out for my box of notions and rulers. Everything goes in there and doesn't move or wiggle. It is a hard sided suitcase so I would have no problem checking it on a plane and wouldn't worry about any damage. TSA might wonder what that's all about but it works for me. I will try to remember to take a picture when I get home.

Thanks for the link, that looks like a great pattern. My case is actually in great shape, I want to keep it that way :-)

That also sounds like a great solution. I'd love to see pictures when convenient.

I have not made a case for mine. It occurs to me that you could use something similar to the casserole dish patterns so that you could use it as both your carrying/safety function and then as a mat with the gadget holder down the front of the table. That would make it multi-functional.
