Wow, the summer is almost gone and I still have so much I wanted to accomplish. However, I had a great summer so I’m not complaining. I promise to get back to more regular posts this fall. Everyone deserves a summer break, don’t they?
In order to get inspired for writing up some new patterns and tutorials, I decided I needed a little inspiration. The sewing room is looking a bit drab because I haven’t made the curtains yet (which will be in a very vintage and cheery looking Minnick and Simpson fabric). So I decided to create a sewing machine cozy!
The tutorial is from Strawberry Patches and I figured this would be the best way to bring in a dash of cheer and inspiration to the room. Once the cover was completed, it seemed like it was missing something, so I decided to applique my favorite sewing slogan on it – and voila! – a constant and fun reminder of how to approach life.
For the applique, I used Steam a Seam 2, which is double-sided fusible web. I cut out the letters, fused them on, and then did a basic zigzag stitch around the edges to hold them in place. I love how it turned out!
Keep it Thimble!

Love the fabrics and your sewing machine cover is great! My sewing machine is very jealous!!
Thank you Patricia! Hope you make one for your machine soon, so it doesn’t start acting up.
This is a neat idea. However, when is your machine not busy. I wouldn’t think it would ever have time to get dressed-up.
That’s true! But I don’t sew a lot during the week, so it’s nice for keeping the dust off.
Love the look so fresh and summery!! The keei it thimble is a clever idea also. Another clever idea~well done!!
Thanks Mrs. B!
