sewing for my sewing machine

I am very lucky to have a dedicated sewing space in my home. I have everything set up in the corner of our lounge room, and while I don’t have to pack everything away at the end of the day, I do like to keep the area looking as neat as possible.

A while ago, I read a post from Closet Case Patterns about making dust covers for their sewing machines. My particular Janome came with a hardcover, but I really wanted something prettier! As you can see, I took a lot of inspiration from CC.

A trip to Spotlight rewarded me with this duck cotton in a gorgeous Monstera Deliciosa print. It adds a lovely pop of fresh green colour to my sewing space.

I didn’t use the free pattern offered by CC, I just drew around the hardcover I already had. It made for a perfectly fitting dust cover. As you can see, I also used piping on the edges, and I added pockets to the back.

The back pockets are perfect for storing the machine foot and power cord when I’m not using them. Again, totally inspired by CC, but it’s such a brilliant addition (who doesn’t love pockets?!).

The cover doubles as a great place to show off my sewing pins! This cute ‘me made‘ enamel pin is from Joy at Pink Coat Club. I’ll have to grab a few more pins to add to my collection.

This cover was a quick and rewarding project. I just wish I’d bought more fabric because my overlocker is crying out for a cover too!
