Quilted Sewing Machine Cover

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.

I am Genie and this is my first visit to your blog. What a treat for me to see what you are doing. The spools are just too cute. I save all of my selvages, but had no idea how I was going to use the short ones...well, now I know. This is a wonderful idea. Your pin cushion and sewing machine covert are wonderful. I have been meaning to make a cover for mine, but I do not seem to ever get to it.

Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation said...

the selvages in the spools are so cute! and of course you had to make another one- I understand the desire for something to be both functional and pretty!

Thanks so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!
