Sewing Machine Cover

This sewing machine cover is not my idea. Saw it on Pinterest some time back and been meaning to make one forever. The cover that came with my Elna sewing machine was a flimsy plastic one that didn’t last long. I used a tea towel that was a gift. Making this sewing machine cover is also a great way to use up fabric off-cuts. I’ve subsequently seen some really cute sewing machine covers. Way more elaborate than this one with such fun appliques. Might use that idea to make a cover for our toaster and blender?

You need: –

  • a tea towel/dish cloth or fabric of similar size
  • matching colour thread
  • pins
  • 1.6 – 2 .0 metres of ribbon cut into 4 equal size pieces
  • sewing machine or needle and thread

Wrap your tea towel/dish cloth over your sewing machine to get a feel for where you want your ties to sit.

Pin the ribbon or ties in place and remove the cover from the sewing machine. In the picture above I was going to use thin ribbon. But then I decided to make tape from green fabric off-cuts. See that concept below.

Fold the towel/dish cloth in half and check where you have pinned the ribbon or ties is aligned. Either hand sew or machine sew the ribbon or ties in place.

Volia! A quick easy sewing machine cover.

More next week.
