Make Yours as Simple or Complex as You Want!

This easy sewing machine cover will be a charming addition to your sewing room while protecting your machine from dust while not in use. It’s so simple to make that you may not need a pattern.

Choose strips of leftover fabric in your favorite colors. Stitch together as many as you need to cover your machine. Layer and quilt it and add ties. The cover ties closed with grosgrain ribbon, but you can make fabric ties if you want.

The tutorial is for a slightly more complex version (the blue one below) but it will aid in basic construction of either style. You could also use an orphan block (or two) in yours.

The tutorial, by Lindsey Weight of Fort Worth Fabric Studio, is super easy to make, even for someone who has never quilted before.

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!
