Sewing Machine Cover

After making a sewing machine cover for my fellow quilt guild member, I decided I needed one as well.  My friend, Mo Bedell, designs some amazing fabric for Andover, and she kindly gave me some of her scraps, so I used them to make a machine cover this past week.  Her fabric is so bright and happy, I loved working with it!

I used the pattern from Lori Holt's book, Quilty Fun.
I used a dark grey Kaffe Fasset shot cotton for the binding and little spools on the front pockets.  It framed all of that bright color in nicely.  If you don't need a cover, you can use it as a mat for the machine, and the pockets hang down to hold your tools.  I like it this way too!  I sew on a large plastic table, and my machine vibrates a bit, so maybe this will help??

Do you have all of your Christmas sewing projects completed yet?  I'm happy to say that I finally do, and I'm so glad!  Enjoy your weekend everyone!
