I have been meaning to make a sewing machine cover for my little Bernina for ages now. I had one that I made soon after I got my machine, but let me be honest, I had NO idea what I was doing. The measurements where off, it was wonky and it was just not 'pretty'. After my husband made a drop in table top for my sewing machine soon after it did not longer fit snug over my machine anyway. Sure it served its purpose, but I really wanted something that not only protects my machine from dust, but it really had to look pretty too.
Aren't the spool blocks cute?! I recently started saving all the selvage edges of fabric I have been using for exactly something like this. There are so many projects that I've seen where they are being used and I just knew I wanted to make something with them. This was the perfect little project for them!

...and just for fun I made a cute pincushion using an old tuna tin, and a thread catcher to go with it.
