I recently found a link on Pinterest on preventive sewing machine maintenance ( http://www.threadsmagazine.com/item/4731/preventive-sewing-machine-maintenance )and I realized that there are several things I haven't been doing.  One being covering up my machine when not in use so that dust, critter hair and other floaties don't end up gumming up my working parts.  So I found a bangin' tutorial on YouTube from the Crafty Gemeni channel that was so easy to follow.  My end result isn't perfect, but I love it dearly and it of course serves its purpose. 

It was my first time using fusible fleece, and making a quilt binding -- which turned out to be quite simple and easier than I had always imagined.  Would love your feedback! =)

It looks nice, and is a great idea.  I just pulled out my daughter's machine and it was very dusty, even though it had been in my linen closet.  Sooooo, I need to make one of those.  Thanks for sharing!

Thanks so much for that link to the sewing machine article. I just now realized why my sewing machine kept ripping threads on cotton and linen (I was using universal needles and they were always sort of "punching" through the fabric in an unwanted fashion)
