101 Crafts to Make = Sewing Machine Cover #86

It has been a long time since I posted one of my 101 Crafts to Make. I haven't been slacking off in the crafting department, just in the posting department.
Here is the Sewing Machine Cover that I made for my Singer. I used to have the plastic cover that it came with but somehow lost it over the years. Needless to say this one is 10x more stylin than the plastic one ever was!

I had this cute fabric lying around and finally knew what to use it for. You will need to measure your machine (height, width and length) and then add for seam allowances. The top edge is on the fold and the sides I serged together.

Divide the width of your machine + 1 inch in two. My machine was 4 inches in width so 4 + 1 / 2 = 2.5.
Now cut out a square from the corner using that measurement, mine was 2.5 by 2.5.

Repeat this for the other corner. Now you will need to sew these edges together.

Fold the fabric in half so the side seam matches with the fold line. Sew across. Now you can topstitch the side seams down (of you want). I serged the bottom edge of my cover and then hemmed it up neatly.

The Finished Sewing Machine Cover!
I love the way this turned out and it was super super easy to make!

Hallo Lydia,

Sieht klasse aus deine Abdeckung u. weißt du was lustig ist - eine andere Bloggerin hat gerade heute ihre Tasche vorgestellt, die sie aus dem selben Stoff genäht hat, wie du deine Abdeckung.

Schau mal

Gruß Gabriele
