My mother-in-law bought this beautiful fabric for me last year so that I could make myself a sewing machine cover. I found several designs online and then decided to just make up my own. Well then the project sat around until I saw this cute idea.
I didn't actually follow the directions since it looked pretty straight forward and I was starting with pre-quilted fabric anyway. I think I started with about 1/2 yard of this fabric from JoAnns, cut out a rectangle, sewed exactly 3 yards of bias tape around the edges, and attached some green ribbon for ties. I meant to attach the ties underneath the bias tape, but got carried away with sewing and forgot. I ended up just sewing the ties directly to the bias tape afterwards with a zigzag stitch.
I love how it turned out. So easy. It is already brightening up my dark sewing room.
I am a young mother, a wife, a friend to my rescued pitbul/boxer puppy, avid crafter, and when I find the time I like to read good books. I wish I could share more of my blessed life with you all on this little blog, but the reality is I just do not feel safe. So you will only get a peak into my life, but please enjoy :)
I have recently gotten into reviewing books for WaterBrook Multnomah Publishers and need a little help. In order to continue the program I need people to rank my reviews. It's so easy... just use the rating bar under each of my reviews, give me as many stars as my review is worth, and input your email address. As an added bonus for ranking my review, your name will also be put in a drawing to win a copy of the book! Thanks for your help!
