Sewing Machine Cover

Yesterday I used my leftover pieces from this block to make myself a sewing machine cover. Slowly but surely I am adding more and more vintage sheet goodness to my 




This star is made with half-square triangles and stipple quilted with white thread. The entire cover measures about 26.5" long and about 18" wide. 
The back is plain white cotton, but with the stipple quilting, it looks pretty fantastic on it's own. There's something so lovely about plain cotton that has been quilted, isn't there? 
I made simple ties on each side to keep the cover in place. (And I think I need to work on my "pretty bow tying" skills!).  : ) 

I think it's a nice addition to my favorite room of the house!

I love your sewing machine cover! It's much cuter than the ones that cover every nook and cranny and have to fit your machine exactly. This one looks doable. And yes, the stippling adds wonderful texture to all the white space. Nice job!

I thin that is just the cutest sewing machine cover, ever! I really need to put this on my list this year, especially since my machine lives on our dining room table! Thanks for linking up with Sew Cute Tuesday, Jodie:)
