My sewing machine has been getting pretty dusty from sitting out, so I decided it needed a cute new cover (the top of my travel case just doesn’t cut it anymore). I was planning on going through my fabric stash to find something suitable, when it occurred to me that it wouldn’t take much to transform a t-shirt into a cover!
I tried several t-shirts on my sewing machine before settling on this one:
If your sewing machine needs a cover, find a cute t-shirt, and five spare minutes (yep, five should do it). Try the t-shirt on the machine just to make sure it fits and you like how the pattern looks on the machine.
Since the shirt already has side seams and a hem, all you have to do is turn it inside-out and sew straight across the shirt under the arm holes (I drew a line with a ruler first, then sewed along that to make sure it was straight). Then trim off the extra fabric, and put it on your machine! Super easy, and quick!
