How To Make A Simple Sewing Machine Cover

"This is a step by step video tutorial showing how to make a simple sewing machine cover for your sewing machine. This is a beginner level project and geared to all skill levels. Why is it important to use a sewing machine cover? Keeping your sewing machine dust free helps care for your machine.

It's also important for the cover to be breathable not make of plastic. Plastic holds moisture and will yellow your nice bright white machine casing. A plastic cover will also break down some internal nylon or plastic machine components over time. Plus it makes your sewing machine look pretty!

I used a flamingo print to make my sewing machine cover.  I'm a Florida gal so I thought this would be a fun print.  Use a print that makes you smile!  Have a Happy Creative Day and I hope you find this a fun, simple project!!"
