Sewing machine cozy

Back in this post I mentioned that I had plans for all of my fabric. What I meant was that I eventually plan to use the fabric, but sometimes, I admit, I don't have a specific plan for the fabric. I definitely didn't plan on using a charm pack of Wonderland by Momo fabric I had on hand for a sewing machine cozy, but I'm so glad I did!


I love love love the Wonderland fabric line. This sewing machine cozy is the perfect way to show off the gorgeousness of all those prints and I'm pretty sure my machine is happy to be so beautifully covered. How can you not smile at those cute scissors and dots in such pretty colors? Every time I walk by my sewing room now I slip my head in for a quick peak. I know some people just wouldn't understand, but I'm pretty sure you [readers] do.


For the cozy, I simply sewed together seven rows of charm squares, attached two side panels of the some pink and purple dot fabric from Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party line cut to size (measure the width and height of your machine and add an inch or two for seam allowance and ease), and hemmed. Voila! Now I'm happy that I can look at those pretty prints on a regular basis and my machine is happy that it's now dust free.

P.S. Have you taken a look at the beautiful summer dresses in the Summer Dress Sewalong flickr pool yet? Remember, you can enter dresses anytime, I'm just featuring them on this blog the week of June 15-19. I need to get sewing!

It looks really great. I plan on making one of these for an old singer machine, but I have to decide which room it is going in first. I should have just had one kid so that I could have had a craft room...

This is soooo inspiring! I was VERY lucky to win the SMS FFF Wonderland charm pack and could not decide what to DO with it! Now I know! Thank you, it is gorgeous!
