15 Minute Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial

Sewing machine cover tutorial
Today we are part of the Riley Blake Quilted Cotton Tour around blog land.  Each day you will see a new project made out of Riley Blake’s new quilted fabrics!  Today is all about a 15 minute sewing machine cover and how to make it.  Here is what you need to do…

1/2 yard of Riley Blake Quilted Fabric
1 package of double fold bias tape
2- 4 inch pieces of elastic
scraps of fabric for words (optional)
fusible interfacing for letters (optional)

Step 1: Measure your sewing machine, over the top and widthwise.  Then cut your fabric.  Mine was 29 inches by 16 inches but it will depend on your sewing machine.
Step 2: Round the corners of your rectangle.  I used a lid to my button container.


Step 3: Cut out your letters for the front.  Iron fusible interfacing to the back and pin on your cover. 


 Stitch letters on.
Step 4:  Add bias tape binding.
Step 5: Sew elastic on sides.

    Great machine cover. I have been trying to find a pattern to make one for my machine and I think I want to make yours. Looks so cute and seems easy to figure out your directions. Thanks.

    Great! In the future, 5 more minutes would be great to add a hole for the handle for those who have to transport it to the table. 🙂

    When I first started receiving comments on the pictures
    from my daughter, asking me to remove the photo’s, I dismissed them, telling myself she was just being modest and shy, and I continued to post them as I always had.
    Make yourself a short video about your business or product you want to

    Hi Elizabeth,
    It is a very good article. A nice sewing machine cover, but to do this, I think you are a good seamstress really.
    Thanks for your tutorial!
