Quilted Sewing Machine Covers – Made By You!

When I write blog posts and tutorials I never know how they’ll be received. Honestly I can’t really imagine other people reading them! It’s funny how that works – I write and I share and it goes out there into internet land and I have NO idea what will happen next. And I really like that!

I have an idea when my projects are well received because lovely people
leave comments, they get pinned and shared and I see that reflected in
my blog statistics. Which is great. But the warm fuzzy feelings and the
dancing around the kitchen happens for me when people show me something
they’ve made using one of my tutorials. It’s a real WOW thing for me –
that someone would open a page on my blog and have it sitting there on
their computer, tablet or phone, and they follow the steps and MAKE IT.

My quilted sewing machine cover has to be one of my all time favourite projects I’ve ever made, and it’s been a pretty huge favourite for you too! Today I’m sharing some AMAZING versions that other fantastic sewers have made and shared with me. I am in a group on Facebook called The Sewing Library and the April project was to make a sewing machine cover. All these lovely ladies are in that group and chose to use my tutorial – thank you 🙂

This first one was made by Erin P from Mumma Mia Designs. The pinks and aquas work so well together!

This one in purple tones was made by Alison from This Novice Sewist. I have that owl print in my stash!

 Love the fabric choices for this one – that black and white bird print works perfectly with the aqua and red! Jama from Little Denim Duck made this one for her Mum.

Kylie made hers with a gorgeous selection of greens.

Check it out – my cover now has a twin! Erin B. made this one, also using a Half Moon Modern charm pack. A few differences – she went with red chevrons on the side and a grey binding around the bottom. Of course I adore it!

As you can imagine I am pretty thrilled to see my cover made up in all different fabric combos and keeping these ladies’ machines dust free! I have seen several others as well and they are all as gorgeous as these ones! If you’ve made anything from my tutorials I’d love to see it – feel free to email me, post it on my facebook wall or add it to my flickr group.

If you are inspired to make one now, you can check out the tutorial here. I really must get myself organised and make one now for my overlocker!

  1. They are beautiful and I am sure they will be use well by their owners. Great work! Pam@Threading My Way, as a group member of The Sewing Library, I highly recommend it. You will have to ask to join in and once it is confirmed, I am sure you will be over the moon. I find the group very useful and people there quite resourceful and helpful.

  2. Hello. Thank you for an inspirationsl tutorial, I'm so going to make this, and I'll send you a photo afterwards I'd love one for my serger as well, did you make a tutorial for that as well? I couldn't find it. That would be adrorable with a sibling!

    1. Hi Jannelea, thanks for your lovely comment. I didn't end up doing a serger tutorial – sergers are such a tricky shape and they all vary in size so much! Looking forward to seeing your version of the sewing machine cover 🙂
