Sewing machine cover!

Hi all,

This weekend I cleaned up my sewing area a bit and wouldn’t you know it….I felt inspired to sew!

Sorry for the dodgy pictures. I bought this panel a few weeks ago on sale, it is so cute although I don’t think I would like mice to help me sew!

I have used the 2 biggest pictures and framed them with fabric out of my scrap draw. I quilted around the outlines, which unfortunately can’t really be seen in the pictures.

By the way, it is a sewing machine cover! I made it like a rectangle quilt with ribbon ties at the sides. I wanted some freedom with the sides because I usually leave the quilting table on, you can see that the bottom just flaps out at the quilting table.

I have some more little panels left, I am thinking mug rugs or pot holders….we will see!

I have also been playing with ideas for the Mug Rug Swap Adventure. My partner doesn’t know I am making it for her, and I don’t think she frequents my blog. Here is a peek at some ideas I have….

What do you think? I am leaning toward the bottom right one and hubby likes the top one.

Love the way your sewing machine cover has turned out. I need to make one for mine too, but have the same problem with the table. I'm going to copy you, if you don't mind. Great mug rug desings; love the one with the flying geese and the cupa! Is it for me by any chance???

The machine cover is delightful! I love the mice! I would choose the first picture for your rug mug design.

I love the sewing machine cover. What cute fabric. Cinderella sewed with mice and birds. What a great job they did, too! I'll take her mice and birds any day as sewing partners!
