Cover it Up!

Unless you have a timeless antique on your hand, chances are you don’t want your sewing machine to be the focus of your room. The drab plastic covers that usually come with the sewing machine don’t quite help the matter either. The obvious answer is to make your own cover! Not only are they simple to construct, you can find free sewing patterns for them online. Once you have one made, you’ll no longer feel the need to hide your favorite hobby.

As much as we covet others who have a designated sewing room, most of us are just squeezing in our machines wherever they will fit. Family or living rooms, laundry rooms, even a table in the bedroom…we’re not picky! Instead of storing it in the back of the closet every time we are done working, why not cover it up with a stylish cover instead? Making a cover to match your curtains, bedspread, or pillows on your couch can be a fun sewing project all on its own.

Having a cover for your sewing machine also helps to keep it in superb shape. Dust can collect in all those grooves sewing machines come with, sometimes getting in the way and causing havoc. As pricey as these faithful machines are, you definitely want to get your moneys worth out of it. Taking tender care of these babies will only add years on to their lifespan. A sewing machine cover is well worth the effort to stretch your dollar a little longer.

Finding free sewing patterns for your machine is a piece of cake. Thanks to the online world, we don’t have to plunk down $10 for one simple pattern. Nor do we have to make a special trip to the sewing store and sift through endless shelves of patterns. There is a wide array of designs to choose from online, ranging from reversible to covers adorned with buttons and such. All for free! With a few clicks, you can find a stylish cover you’d be proud to display in your home.
