Bingo! My machine came with a cheap, thin type of plastic bag/cover thing. The sewing machine shop suggested I don't use it because in hot weather condensation will form inside the cover and wet the machine. Result is the machine is always dusty. Thank you for showing me that I need to make one of these covers and solve the problem.

Not only are these functional but they are all so cute!

HOW have I never thought of this before? No wonder my machine is always dusty. Thanks, AFS!

Put a pillowcase over it! Done!

Put a pillow-case over it.
