In The Craft Room: One Hour Sewing Machine Cover

Looking to create a brighter spot to sew in?  Want ways to keep dust out of your sewing machine?  Only can spare one hour?

Try this easy…I’m talking easy….sewing machine cover!

Supplies Needed:

  • 1/2 yard each of two coordinating fabrics
  • 2 yards ribbon
  • Thread

Here are the fabrics I chose…


The first step is to measure the width and height of your machine along with the desired length of the cover.


Once you have the measurements, cut out two rectangles from your fabric.  Stitch right sides together but only on the long sides.  You want to create a long tube with the ends open.


Turn right side out and adjust tube to create a 2/3  to 1/3 fabric ratio.  Press.


Fold in the outside edges of the top and bottom of the tube and pin.


Stitch.  I did a scallop stitch in white.


Now cut out eight, even pieces of ribbon.  Pin to the inside of the cover.  Stitch in place.



Now tie onto your sewing machine!  The best part of this cover is that you can just pull it off and slip back on as needed.  No need to retie the ribbons!.




Have fun sewing!!
