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.
