So it seems as if the sewing duo (aka the girls) are here to stay out on the table. I've been sewing almost daily, no sense in putting them away. But they were naked! Or "nakey" as we say in our house….. so after scrounging around in my fabric stash and remembering a few yards of oil cloth I bought on sale months ago…. I came to this idea.
sergers are a funny shape!
I sewed one up for Miss 11's machine first….. yes we finally put my old machine in the girls room (more on that soon). And I loved it so much that my serger and sewing machine got one next. They were all made up after dinner before bedtime in a flurry of tracing and cutting and sewing…..
Basically you just need to measure the sides of your machine, add a 1/2 inch seam allowance and an inch for the bottom hem. I sergered them together and used a decorative stitch to hem the bottom. Or you can trace an old cover if you happen to have one. They aren't perfect, but you know they keep the dust off a sewing machine rather well, and best of all they look smashing with turquoise and orange. Oh, I am smitten with this print!
Happy stitching friends!
