Sewing machine cover

Posted on 7:35 am

I’ve always wanted a cover for my machine. Not just for the looks although it has to be cute but also to keep my kiddos from messing with the needle & thread I have in my machine.

I had some duck chevron fabric leftover from my ironing board cover tutorial so I thought it would be nice & easy if they matched :). This is a super simple way to make a cover & will fit any size machine. Its very similar to how I make a bag just upside down & no lining or straps.

Drape your fabric over the top & pin the sides. Cut around the bottom but leave maybe 1/2″ seam allowance to do the hem. You could also use bias tape or just zig zag the edges. But leave enough at the bottom so its not too short.

Sew along where you pinned from top to bottom. Then take the top corners & pinch them & sew across the bottom of the triangle. Depending on how big your machine is will determine how far from the triangles point you will sew.

Sew a straight line under the pin all the way across making a triangle. Do this to both sides.

Once done turn right side out and hem the bottom, use bias tape, or serge. Hemming was rather easy even around the corners but I’m a big fan of bias tape especially for a pop of color.

But I’ll settle for a few red flowers instead :)
