Yeah, it was time to give my sewing machine a cover with a little more style. So I took my old plastic-y cover that came with the machine, analyzed it, and then copied the construction using Anna Marie Horner fabric. I also added fusible interfacing to the fabric so it would be a little more stiff.
Most important feature, a hole for the handle--so it is portable! I have seen so many sewing machine covers that do not have an opening for the handle. But since I have to store my machine in an cupboard or take it places to sew (like Erin's where I made this cover), it's important that I be able to move it easily with the cover on.
