Day 3- It’s my party Sewing Machine cover

So here we are to day 3.  I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday.  This week is flying by.  It doesn’t help that both my husband and oldest son have been sick since Saturday.  I’m ready for this crappy cough/ fever junk to break and leave my poor family alone.  While I haven’t gotten sick myself, I don’t sleep well with all the racket going on around me.  I’ve been up today since 3 a.m.  It’s now 11 p.m.  So I hope you’ll forgive the lack of proper pressing on my sewing machine cover.  I totally made up the pattern, but I think I really like it.  I would like to line it and perhaps even add some fusible fleece to give it more body, but overall I’m really happy with it.  I used a natural cotton fabric for the main fabric and used pieces of the Delighted line by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake.  I love the colors she uses, and I have a fat quarter bundle of her newest line Apple of My Eye just waiting to be cut into.  Can’t wait! 🙂

Gwen also made a sewing machine cover.  I thought it would be fun to see both of our takes on a similar project.  And I think you can really see our personalities come through.  Cool huh?

If you want to see more details of how she pulled off this gorgeous cover, click over to her blog.

For now, I’m going to go to bed.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!

    Love it, Amy! It's very you 🙂 The flowers are a really nice touch. I think you're absolutely right… our covers do show our personalities. Hope you're getting some rest and everyone is feeling better soon.

    Good choice not to press when sleep deprived…irons and lack of sleep do not go well together. 🙂 I hope everyone is feeling much better.

    Your cover is awesome! I am in love with the flowers! 🙂
