Here’s my latest, completed sewing project. I don’t know what I love more the fabric or the project itself.
A bit corny but who cares. It’s a sewing machine cozy…it’s also the name of the pattern. It was so easy and quick. I made a few modifications as were suggested in the comments section of the post about this project.
It’s so bright and colorful and very “tongue in cheek”…love it!
Yes, that’s my new sewing cabinet (squeeeeel!!) but we’ll talk about that later.
I cut out some of the images from the fabric, that I found particularly fun, and blanket stitched them in place. A lovely feature on my machine. Again it’s so silly but I couldn’t resist that phrase…I have found it easy….
This was my first time using the blanket stitch. It’s not as clean-looking as I would like but part of the fun is learning how to use it and all the other features/stitches.
Corners came out pretty good but I still have so much to learn…
2 1/2″ double fold binding…
I’d say a project well done and lots learned…
Project: Sewing Machine Cozy
Fabric: “home sewing is easy” The Alexander Henry Fabrics Collection (c) 2008…which I purchased here.
Modifications: I lined all the pieces with Fusible Fleece to give it a little “body” (as per a comment suggestion). I also custom fit it my machine. The original measurements were a bit to big.
Every well loved and heavily used sewing machine deserves one of these!! I may have to make another one just for fun…
