Cozy Cover for Singer Featherweight


I decided that my Singer Featherweight needed a cozy cover to keep the dust off it and protect the paintwork when I am not using it.  It does have its own wooden box to store it but I prefer to keep the machine out so it is ready for action at a moments notice!

Found this Laura Ashley check fabric in my cupboard and thought it would be perfect.  It looked a bit plain so I added badge to tart it up.  The fabric perfectly matched the chair cushion cover I bought recently.  The small jug holding the rotary cutter etc was bought in a lovely vintage shop on a whim, I had to have it cos of the colour but I wasn't sure what would be done with it until I thought of a storage jar on my sewing table.

Speaking of cozy covers, as the weather was very parky last night, my hand sewn patchwork quilt has come out.  This English paper pieced quilt was intended to be a cushion cover made out of left over curtain material but I got carried away, added the pink fabric to it and it ended up as a double bed quilt.  Needless to say it took a while but this quilt is the reason I now have the quilting bug especially the hand quilting bit.  There is something about sitting on the sofa with a cozy quilt draped over me while I hand sew.  Heaven.

    1. Thanks Gail, I bought a pattern but it was for a full size machine so had to cut it down to fit.
