Oh this could not have come at a better time. I just bought a new sewing machine and no one seems to carry a dust cover for it in material. The Only ones I found are the white hard plastic ones for big money. Now I can custom match it to my sewing room. Thank you for sharing this pattern and idea.

You can also find the Husqvarna on which I found via a search of free sewing machine covers. :-)

for those of you looking for the Husqvarna pdf. I found it here Though all of these look really nice. Now I have to decide which one I am going to use.

Thank you so much for sharing!! I think this is the cover for me!! I agree, with so much inspiration here, I am sure we will come up with something absolutely perfect!

They are all really nice and I will start making them for my 2 sewing machines and probably make one for my serger machine.

well fancy or not there are all so cool though

I was looking at all the sewing machine covers and noticed a shoe rack made of cloth on a door in one of the pictures. I was wondering if it was store bought or would there be a pattern on here for it? That would work Great in my sewing room. Besides, my machine NEVER gets the chance to get dusty or mch time to be covered in the first place. LOL Dyan

Hi I checked and this is what Christine's blog said about the shoe rack "I had tons of ribbon, yarn, beads and fabric, as well as pins, needles and bobbins that needed an organized home. To create storage for yarn and fabric, I hung a canvas shoe rack on the back of the bedroom door. The pockets are great for storing everything from knitting needles to fabric scraps. Also, when I open the door, it automatically hides the rack!"

I made a sewing machine cover some time ago and sewed a mesh zippered makeup bag to one side and a big pocket to the other, it is also reversible and has a split top for my handle,i think these are some great ideas and with a little imagination anyone can make one to suit their needs...

The Husqvarna also has a split for the handle. That way even if you have a carrier for your machine it is very easy to transfer from table, etc. to carrier. Along with the added advantage of being able to move the machine without removing the cover. I love the color too, it makes it difficult to forget you have a sewing machine there. :)

Well I can easily see that each is an original and they are all beautiful. Awesome idea.

I agree these are very simple and straight forward covers. Nothing to them the one I made also left a slit at the top so I could use the handle to transport the machine with cover. I also added a pocket on the side to hold the cord and foot pedal in so everything stayed together. My is a much more practical cover for my machine.

I disagree that these are ordinary. If one wanted to get really fancy they could crochet one in single or half double crochet & put a crocheted flower, etc. on the front, or even put their name across it.

Nice covers; rather ordinary. Good jumping off point for creating my own. I had never considered making my own. When I come up with a design and make it, can I send my photo ? Thanks ! Maria
