Inspired by the awesome cover made by "heybabyboombah"
 http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=224256.0
I replaced my old scungy cover with this!







Black vinyl 50 cents from the offcut bin at Spotlight, bird cut from the old vinyl cover.
( I was thinking something old, something new, something borrowed, something.....black?)
Took about oh, 10 minutes from start to finish, why did I have the horrible one so long?

Am I happy?
Yes I am!

Wow!  I've never wanted a sewing machine cover until this precise moment.  It's perfect and would match my craft room wonderfully!

10 minutes?  Dang!!

I know what you mean!
I never even thought about it till I saw one, then as Im tidying the room, it seemed obvious.
I cut my old cover up to make the pattern.
It took longer to find a pic of a bird I liked than to cut it out and sew the whole thing, lol

Nice, but your backdrop gave me a fantastic idea. Someone gave me a 3 in circle punch and I had no idea what to use it for,  bubble pics!

ScrappySue, thanks so much for posting your great cover!  I love it, and it inspired me to make one too.  Funny about the vinyl - I bought a scrap bit at JoAnne's thinking I'd make a little something having never had worked with vinyl before.  My son was going paintballing, so I sewed up a quick vest and lined it with some batting.  Anyhow, I realized it wasn't too hard to work with and when I saw your post, I knew what I wanted to do!





The image on the front is a designed "I" that I had doodled many years ago, but much more simplistic. Yeah, my name is Ingrid. The doodle on paper is much better, but this is ok.  I never had a cover for my machine, so I kinda winged it as far as pattern.  I did make a hole for the handle, which I do like.  I also tried to do some fancy seams -I still need to work on that though lol.

Anyhow, thanks for the inspiration!
