Happiness in the New Year... is having oodles of fun projects to make... and making them along with good friends!

January's theme for ATPSA is:    Sewing Machine Cover

There are lots of super cute patterns and tutorials out there.  I've found a few to share with you , if you need an idea to make yourself a new cover for your little buddy!

Sewing Machine Cover Tutorials~

Idea 1:      Patchwork Sewing Machine Cover   at  Sew Mama Sew

Made by Tiny House

and this is another cover using the same tutorial:

Made by Sew Bird Crazy

I love the simplicity of this design.

Idea 2:    Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial   by Ellison Lane Quilts

I love this patchwork  sewing machine applique!

Idea 3:  Knitted Sewing Machine Cover     by  Knitting Minnesota

My daughter would love this one! {She's an avid knitter.}   Aren't the buttons cute?

Idea 4:     Denim Sewing Machine Cover    at  Denim Do Over

This was a pair of old jeans.... upcycled into a cover! How clever is this!
 {I have a pair of white jeans that I have been saving to upcycle... they'd be great for this!}

Idea 5:   Snuggly Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial   by Susie's Sunroom

I made this sewing machine cover tutorial , in Feb 2013.  

A few details-

This would fit a pretty big sewing machine.  My Viking is 20" wide,  12 " high,and 8 " deep.
(It's plenty big.)

I made  some HST from  charms (5 inch squares) : grays(from a Shades of Gray Swap) and yellow/white/ gray polka dot fabric( DS Quilts).

Oh, this isn't all....If you want to see even MORE fun patterns and ideas,  go on over to The Patchsmith to see what she has to share.  Amanda is in the process of making a delightful patchwork cover, using   4½” squares from fabric scraps left over from the Wishes SAL  and some Bonnie & Camille off-cuts. She'll be adding some extras!  I LOVE her fabrics!

Later this month, I'll share another sewing machine cover that I made for my Baby Lock machine.  ( I couldn't leave her out! )

If you haven't joined in making any projects with us, maybe  it's time to make a few projects with us now !  Be sure to put your project in our Flickr group , to share.  We love seeing everyone's projects!
