Scrappy Vintage Sewing Cover

 Dusting off the cobwebs of my blog, thought it was about time I posted after a rather long absence. I have been beavering away in my sewing corner. I recently bought a rather delightful 1955 singer featherweight. It sews beautifully and is perfect for piecing my patchwork and beats my all singing and dancing computerised Bernina for neat stitching hands down.

Such a sweet machine deserves a cover to stop it getting dusty; dusting the house you see, is not high up there in my list of priorities! I used a pattern from Lori holts book 'Quilty Fun' to make this cover that has a dual use as a mat to store your bits and bobs whilst sewing.

I'm rather enjoying using more vibrant and brighter fabric in my sewing at the moment, and recently made yet another sewing kit.

Hopefully it won't be so long before my next post.

Take care and happy crafting xx

Beautiful quilting for a piece of artwork. Those old machines are definitely objects of beauty in their own right.
