Sew Cute Tuesday, December 8


When I saw dust on the thread about to go through the needle in my machine, I realized THIS IS A PROBLEM!  It was obviously being picked up when passing over the machine surfaces.  Occasional dusting would not take care of this.  I needed a machine cover NOW. 

I have enough going on without taking the time to stitch up a cute colorful cover.  What did I have on hand?  Lots of green type fabric grocery bags, taking up room that could be used for more stash.  After pawing through a pile of them, I found this larger black plastic fiber one.  The size worked, so with my kitchen shears (NOT my Ginghers) I cut it down to size and voila! It fits perfectly and only took one minute.  Not very colorful, so I will have to do something to deck it out.  Maybe Christmas lights?

I'm working on a secret gift now, so that's it for now.  Have a good time quilting.

I link up with RSC15 at superscrappy.blogspot.com and Sew Cute Tuesday at blossomheartquilts.com.  Come see what everyone is up to.

  1. Didn`t your machine come with a cover? Must admit I leave mine out in the kitchen sometimes uncovered, must stop that as it could be effected by grease. Have been thinking about making nice soft covers for all 3 machines as they look much nicer than the hard cases but so far only thought about it!!I nw have my bernina in my horn cabinet so that folds away which means it is more protected. Rather like the table you have, could so with one of those for the New Home but then again it would take up room I have not got
