A Winner and a Winning Sewing Machine Cover

Gill Watson! You are a winner! You won the e-version of Sweet Tweets! Congratulations :) I sent you an email.
A few weeks ago, I decided to tackle a sewing machine cover for my Janome 6600. I was still using the vinyl cover that came with the machine. But when a terrific load of Yuwa fabric was dropped on our shop...I just knew it was time!
This fabric, in particular, was the one that got my wheels spinning!
So without a pattern...just a good foundation of bag and box making...I set forth to create....
  I truly cobbled this together! Honestly, it was whack and hack!
I added a long pocket (divided) made of Hexies! Some of my favorite pieces fussy cut and some of the sweet hexies Susi sent to me!
I added a smaller hexie pocket on the reverse side...and some pieced well as bits of some of my favorite fabrics ;)
On both ends, I added tall pockets for rulers and tall things! Notice the fussy cutting! Hahahaha!
It was fun putting it together and really not difficult. I do find that if I am attempting something from scratch...oversize the pieces when possible. It's like your hair, you can always cut more's difficult to put it back together. 
happy Monday!


  1. Love the sewing machine cover! So much fun! Congrats to the winner.

  2. Very nice! I'm wanting to make myself one as well!

  3. Congratulations, Gail! Glad for you, sad for me! Thanks anyway for the chance to win! :)

  4. How spooky is that- Gill won one of my recent giveaways!!

  5. what a great cover you have made, now your machine looks so good and can be left out and admired. Such a good idea having the pockets, I have a bernina and the foot pedal, extension table etc are all stored in the hard cover so the pockets would be ideal for those bits maybe I will attempt to make one too

  6. Oh Mary....I adore you sewing machine cover!! Those hexies have my heart....and you are amazing with fabric selection! 💕💕

  7. This truly is THE epic sewing machine cover!! I bet it is a constant joy to see and live with!!! :)
