Well, LOOK AT THAT!!
My new Selvage Sewing Machine Cover.
When I chopped off this section, I knew exactly what I would make. I wanted to use mostly browns, rust and beiges. That’s why I had to cut into the selvage piece I made last week.
These are the fabrics I used in addition to the selvages. Brown with large white dots for the back. Brown dotted swiss and an orange FQ.
Quilting was double straight lines two inches apart.
I used this Hera Marker from Clover.
It works fantastic for marking straight lines without actually marking up the fabric. I worked ahead and marked up to three lines. I love it!! And plan to use it every chance I get.
You can see the lines I made (faintly) here in this photo.
After finishing the quilting, I decided to add a pocket. I hated covering up the selvages (after all that work) but I really wanted a pocket in the front. I remembered I had this fabric with sewing machines in my stash.
And made my pocket.
Next, I made the side ties from the brown polka dot fabric and sewed on the top this ribbon that looks like a tape measure.
If you have never tried the SnapSetter, then run out and buy one now. It is so easy to use. I borrowed hubby’s old hammer. He doesn’t mind me using his tools as long as they look old and decrepit like this.
This is one of the snaps on the sewing machine cover.
Whew!! Now that I have shown you how I made it, let me show you how I will use it. It won’t just be a blanket for my beloved Memory Craft Janome.
Many uses are planned for this baby.
It will also be a mat/thread catcher under my sewing machine.
A table runner.
And lastly, a wall hanging when the sewing machine is in use.
You can see the hanging tabs here on the back.
So… that’s another of my selvage projects. Plus I finished two more Christmas tree mug rugs. Just need to take photos. And I have to show you my latest 20 charity pillow cases.
