Fat Quarter Gang - Stitchin' Sewing Machine Cover by During Quiet Time
May 06, 2013
Hi everyone, it's Amy from During Quiet Time here today to share a tutorial to make this Stitchin' Sewing Machine Cover.
I wanted my sewing machine cover design to be sewing related, given it's job and all, but wanted to avoid things that I have seen done before at the same time. That quickly eliminated spools and pieced sewing machines.
I decided to use Pat Bravo's Carnaby Stree to piece 3 traditional stitches: the cross stitch, straight stitch and zigzag. You might not automatically associate the design with stitching but that's ok because it has a cool graphic look to it at the same time. I used a big chunk of Ladylike Black Tea, my absolute favorite print in the line, for the rest of the exterior so that I would get to see it lots.
- 1/2 yard Pure Elements Sandstone

I hope you enjoy making a cover for your machine! Remember, you will want to measure your own machine and make adjustments as necessary for a good fit.
