Excellent Instructions for Fitting Any Machine!
Patchwork squares make a lovely cover for protecting your sewing machine while not in use. (Yes, it’s a good idea to cover it at night to keep dust out.)
If you take your machine to classes and quilt group get-togethers, you’ll appreciate the gap at the top for the handle (or, leave that off if you don’t need it). Machine cords and other tools fit in the end pockets for traveling.
The cover, from The Patchsmith (Amanda), was inspired by a similar cover by Ros from Sew Delicious. Amanda added a gap for the handle and the pockets on each end.
A second tutorial, from Notes from the Patch, provides instructions for measuring your machine and making a nicely fitting cover. You’ll also find instructions there for creating the end pockets.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
