Sewing Machine Cover Makeover

I love all those gorgeous quilted sewing machine covers out there, especially the one made by my friend Ros over at Sew Delicious see it here. However I do like that I have a hard cover, since I am banging things around all the time.

So I decided to give mine a little washi treatment.


Started like this.

Then I just kept wrapping tape around it.



DIY Delight or Disaster? YUCK!! I hate it, so gaudy I kept thinking this will have to look better at some point, sadly no, no it did not, back to the drawing board. Total Disaster!


Thanks for reading,

Mel xo

  6. You are so funny. I still think it looks better than the plain Jane before. It's probably just a disaster in your mind because it didn't turn out how you had imagined in your head.

  8. You're too hard on yourself. I like it. I think it's the purple that's throwing me off so if it were my cute cover, I'd ditch the purple and repeat the top half all the way down, with the lace and the hearts.

  12. I really like it, Mel!! I don't see yuck at all. Look at the difference between before and after, it's really cute, and I think it looks a fancy suit case, too!

  17. I don't know Mel....anything that makes a sewing machine look snazzier is a winner in my book. Damien just has the plastic/vinyl cover that he came with,he could use some help.
