Fringed Sewing Machine Cover (plus a tutorial)- ccmc-om5

We had a fantastic last week of projects and tutorials over at the Create with Connie and Mary Occasions Mini Edition! I can't believe it is over! It went by so quickly. This week we have been creating using all the products in the Oh Sew Suite from the Occasions Mini.

Ok, on to this week's Saturday challenge which was to Sew (real or faux)! Usually Saturday challenges are for our subscribers to join in and every time they do they are entered to win a $75 Stampin' Up! merchandise gift certificate and a FREE registration to Create with Connie and Mary Summer Mini Edition, but this week, since it is our last week it is only for the Design Team.

My sewing machine needed a new cover so bad I could hear it begging me to use the Sweet Stitches designer Series fabric to make a new cover for it this week, sew (so) that is what I did!

I used one pack of Sweet Stitches designer series fabric to make the entire cover. I added the "SEW..." to the front of the cover using the Fabric Adhesive Roll and some dark brown fabric that was die cut using the Serif Essentials bigz dies.

I am not going to go into a lot of details on how I made this here, because I have made a short two page pdf "how to" for you to download! Here it is: Fringed Sewing Machine Cover How To!

Be sure to head over to the Create with Connie and Mary site to check out the other Design Team Members sewing projects this week! While you are there make sure you check out their blogs as well!

I love this! Great tutorial too! Too bad I just made a sewing machine cover...I guess I can always change it up!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! I just got a sewing machine for my birthday last month and it did not come with a cover. And I have been wanting to sew something with the new fabric. Can I say how excited I am that you had this idea and are willing to share it!!! This is super awesome! Thank you!!
