Sewing Machine Cover Pattern Ideas

Take a look at these brilliant ideas for making a sewing machine cover

Most sewing machines come with a flimsy plastic dust cover which is not very attractive if you have to leave your sewing machine out.  If you make a new sewing machine cover you can leave your sewing machine out in any room in the house without it collecting dust and looking ugly.  Dust is not good for your machine, so be sure to use a cover.  Sewing up a pretty cover will inspire you back to finish off all those projects you have planned.
