Sewing with Whimsy
Make a Sewing Machine Dust Cover
I use my sewing machine a lot, so it is set up and ready to go on a regular basis. This means it can get dusty, and it is kind of an eyesore when I have company. To eliminate both these problems, I designed a cover that can easily be removed when needed.
Things You Will Need:
Medium weight interfacing
Measure the largest width circumference of your sewing machine. In most cases that will be around the bottom. Divide that measurement in half and add 1 inch. This is the width measurement for your cover. Measure from the table at the front of your sewing machine on the right side (this is where the bulk of your sewing machine's brains are), over the tallest extension on the top of the sewing machine (usually the thread holder), to the table at the back. Add an inch to this measurement. This is the length of your sewing machine cover.
Cut two rectangles from your chosen fabric using your width and length measurements. Cut one rectangle of the same size from medium weight interfacing. The interfacing will stiffen the structure of your finished cover so that it holds its shape while draped over the various bumps and protrusions on your machine.
Cut four 8-inch lengths of 1/4-inch-wide ribbon. Lay one fabric rectangle on your work surface with the right side facing up. Position the fabric with the width at the top and bottom. Along one long edge, measure 8 inches down from the top. Pin the end of one ribbon at this measurement with the ribbon laying across the width of the fabric. On the same long edge, measure up 8 inches from the bottom. Pin another ribbon at this measurement. Repeat with the remaining ribbons on the opposite long edge.
Place the remaining fabric rectangle on top with the wrong side facing up. Place the interfacing rectangle on the fabric. Line up the edges evenly. Pin around all the edges, through all the layers.
Sew around the pinned edges using a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Leave a 4-inch opening in the center of one short edge for turning. Clip the corners to remove bulk and turn the cover right side out. Press the cover.
Top stitch around the cover 1/4-inch from the edge. This will finish off the edges while closing the opening.
Drape the cover over your sewing machine. Tie the ribbons together on each end of your machine to hold the cover in place.
Choose fabric to coordinate with your room, or try a fun novelty print.
