Sewing Machine Cover

My small Janome Gem Gold resides near a window and right next to my sweet supervisor’s bed.

This is a great little machine…I sewed my leader/ender bow tie quilt with it.

The problem is that my sweet little supervisor has long hair and she sheds prolifically.  It is everywhere!

Moving her bed is not an option, so I live with kitty hair and lint on my machine (and everywhere else).  I have wanted to make a quick and easy cover for the little Gem Gold for some time.

I have waited and waited for the right time to make a sewing machine cover.  I can’t understand why it took me so long to figure out that the right time is the time that I actually do it!  

There are a whole lot of sewing machine cover tutorials online and I chose a cute little tutorial by Amanda Niederhauser.

    Yet another ‘Laura-ism’.
    I’m finding this to be true, also. Yay for us!
    ps-your machine quilting skills never cease to amaze me plus the choice of lime green and orange in this piece is perfect!

    • We are on a roll…you and I, Laura. 🙂

      Fortunately for me, I have the choice to take pictures of the bad tension on the back, or not. I chose not. Ha, ha! I discovered the poor tension after I quilted merrily along for a time. I also chose not to rip it out, but I did take the time to adjust the tension so that the rest of the quilting looks good on both sides. Heh, heh!

      I’ve gotta have lime and orange in my sew happy place (also known as the Decompression Chamber thanks to my blogger friend, Kathy).

  2. Hi Laura! I can’t even begin to admit how long it’s been since I’ve been going to make a sewing machine cover. Let’s just admit to SO LONG. Thanks for sharing the link. I just need to do it, just as you did. It’s the right time! Thanks for the inspiration. {{Hugs}} Happy St Patrick’s Day! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • I bet that your SO LONG, and mine, are pretty similar, Roseanne. Ha, ha! I should probably make covers for the other two machines, but I figure I pretty darn good to have accomplished this after SO LONG! 🙂

  4. You’re right, sometimes we prevaricate for so long and then it’s a simple and enjoyable task! Love the sewing machine cover, I like the tie ends as it looks a simple way of getting it to fit well. Job well done 🙂


    • You are so right, Margaret! This was a simple and enjoyable task. And I love the word, prevaricate…I’ve seen you use it before. Somehow it sounds better than procrastinate. 🙂

      Yes, that is why I chose this type of cover. The tie ends make this cover easy to fit (and easy to make).


  5. What a good choice of pattern and fabrics for your sewing space. I’m a big fan of lime green – it’s one of those colours that goes surprisingly well with just about any other colour.


I love hearing from you!
