Sewing machine cover PDF pattern

For those of you who have been waiting patiently for my sewing machine cover pattern, 'Beyond Measure', it is ready and available at the shop! This pattern was originally published in the November 2010 issue of Australian Homespun magazine.
The cover is a tailored design, closed at the ends to keep the dreaded dust at bay. It has piping trim, simple running stitch embroidery and pearl button embellishment. The 'measuring tape' twill ribbon can be purchased at The Home Patch, who readily do mail orders. They sell the ribbon in metric & imperial markings.
I made the cover twice, changing the patchwork panel from the hip and happening 'Hope Valley' by Denyse Schmidt to the more subdued and elegant fabrics from the 'Martinique' range by 3 Sisters. It gives the cover and entirely different look.
I live by a theory that ANYTHING + LINEN = SUCCESS.
'Hope Valley' and 'Martinique' are such different ranges, but against the common foil of linen, I think they both sparkle.
I have designed a companion set to this machine cover. It will be released as a PDF pattern in a couple of months, subject to my contract with Homespun magazine.
Thank you for your support of my fledgling little pattern business, especially the lovely souls who purchased my 'Abracadabra' quilt pattern. I appreciate your support sincerely!

  9. Love the cover and want to make it. LOVED seeing you in Homespun, and enjoyed so much reading your story. It sounded very familiar to mine - I so related to it. I have recently re-read it, and just loved it all over again.

  14. It's a good idea to keep your sewing machine covered when not in use.

  18. I got a new machine and need something other than the plastic cover that came with it. Of course it needs not be fancy like this at all as any fabric will do. I've sewn for 42 yrs. and have learned you can make many, many nice thigns from cheap fabric. I'll use a sheet for the fabric and it'll be just fine. No need to waste money on linen as that's so expensive. I'll repurpose as all it needs to do is keep dust from the machine. Thanks for the pattern. Deb

  21. Hi, I'm wondering if this is lined. Kind of a silly question, but I don't see this info anywhere and I want to be sure before I purchase the pattern -- thanks!!
