Sew Cute Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial.

Want to make a cute sewing machine cover for you machine when kept it out of view or from little fingers touching it? 
Well then this tutorial is just for you :)




Let's Begin...
First measure the length of your sewing machine all the way to the knob. Then add 1" for hem (1/2" hem on each side) Mine measured 16" so 17" with the 1" hem allowance.
Then measure you machine from one side over to the top & down the other side.
Mine measured 27 1/2" which means 28 1/2" with the 1" hem allowance.
So take your main fabric & cut out the shape to cover your sewing machine. Mine was 28 1/2" x 17".
now hem all sides. I folded the edge over by 1/4" then again & sew. (the picture below is after i put the ruffles on but you get the idea lol sorry)




Now for the ruffles...
cut four 3" strips double the length of your sewing machine. So mine measured to 34" strips. Hem every side of the strip. To make the ruffles I used my ruffler attachment for my sewing machine & set it to every 6 stitches. 
If you do not have a ruffler attachment & need to know how to make a ruffle you can email me for directions (dominiquesboutique@yahoo.com). 
To attach ruffle to main fabric measure 1/4" from the end of the main fabric & pin ruffle down. Sew alone stitch line of the ruffle. Then pin second ruffle 1/4" up from the first one & sew on the stitch line. Repeat this on other side. 



Ribbon for ends:Then you need to attach four pieces of ribbon, two on each side to tie together on the side of your machine to keep the cover on.





To make pom pom flowers...
Then make three pom pom flowers & hot glue them on the main fabric where ever you like. cut three 1 1/2" circles from the felt. Then cut a bunch of 1 1/2" circles from the accent fabric. Take one fabric circle & pinch in the middle to fold it up kinda, put a dab of hot glue on the middle part that you pinched & glue to middle of felt. repeat this till the felt is covered. To this for other two flowers.





& that is it! You are all done & have a super cute sewing machine cover! If you have any questions just email me :). If you make one I would love to see pictures so please share! :D. 

Happy sewing ladies!

  21. Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established blog such as yours require
    a lot of work? I'm completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to
    start a blog so I can easily share my own
    experience and thoughts online. Please let me know
    if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

  26. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and very broad for me.

  32. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues
    of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.
