Make a Sewing Machine Cover
Since I inherited my grandmother's old sewing machine and have been sewing a lot more, I've been keeping the machine out between projects. I want to protect it from dust (and cats), so I usually just pop the hard cover it came with over it and let it be. However, the cover isn't anything to write home about. It's bulky and not very aesthetically pleasing, so I decided to make a sewing machine cover so that the machine would look more like a decoration in the room.
The first step is to measure your machine to get the correct dimensions for your three pieces. The big piece goes from front to back. I measured the cover my machine came with. Then you'll need two side pieces. My machine cover has a bit of a slope, so I had to cut the two side pieces at a bit of an angle.
Pin and sew the two side pieces to the the big piece as pictured above.
This is where it gets pretty difficult to explain without really detailed photos. Basically what you need to do now is fold your side pieces up and sew them to the big piece to make a box-like structure...
...that looks a bit like this one! Once you have this shape, you can press the seams, trim the excess fabric, and hem your raw edges.
