15+ Free Sewing Machine Cover Patterns and Ideas
It’s very important to cover your sewing machine when you are not using it. We create so much dust with our fabric and thread when we are sewing, that we don’t really need any extra everyday dust into our trusty sewing machine (or serger). It’s super simple to make a cover, so go ahead and whip up one. A handmade cover is a million times better than a plastic cover. Not only it protects your machine from dust but it’s such an eye candy. If you are keen to make your own, just check out this collection of free sewing machine cover patterns and pick the one to make today.
Please note that there is not a template that suits all machines a brand makes. There is no juki sewing machine cover pattern or brother sewing machine cover pattern simply because of the sheer variety of machines each brand has. If you feel lazy or prefer the simplest option, go for a cover with ties. However I believe it’s best to make a custom sewing machine cover according to the measurements of your sewing machine. It’s involves some simple math but everything is shown step by step, so don’t worry So without further ado
