I made this set for a wonderful friend. She has been wanting both of these things for a long time now and I've wanted to make them for her!

The sewing machine cozy is reversible. I used my totally willing doggy friend to model the first side for me.  Wink


A close up of the fabric rosettes I made for embellishment.


Now for the other way to use it! It is a bit crazier, but this fabric is so fun!


I also made the thread catcher reversible using the same fabrics and also you can change the hanging length by folding the hanging tab under the pin cushion.


Thanks for looking! Smiley

LOVE! That is the coolest fabric ever and will be a perfect coordinate in my sewing room / bedroom!
I hope it looks half as lovely on my machine as it does on the ever handsome Sir Merlin!

And I NEED that threadcatcher - yesterday! LOL xox

Thanks everyone!
Actually he was sleeping and I just plunked it down on him.  Cheesy He didn't move until I took it off. Then I got the "I am annoyed" look.  Grin

Thanks! The thread catcher isn't my idea! I have one that a friend made for me and I just copied it. I couldn't find a suitable pattern online, but it was easy enough to just wing it.
