Tutorial Tuesday: Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial

Ooops, the sewing machine cover tutorial has moved over to, you can now find it here!


  1. I love that fabric and the black, white, and pink combo!

  2. Thanks Fern, great tutorial! I am shopping around for a sewing machine at the moment and I am going to try this out as soon as I get it home 🙂

  3. Thanks for the feedback guys! 😀

    Tamsyn – let me know when you’ve done it, I’d love to see some other finished versions.

  5. Fern…that’s adorable! Love the colors~

    With friendship,

  6. Thanks Lisa!

  7. i made one before, but this one is so much better! thanks!

  8. That’s really great.

  9. […] 1. I dusted off my sewing machine about a week ago. I was trying to find a nice sewing machine cover for it on etsy with no luck. I guess people who have sewing machines generally know how to sew their cover, so etsians figure no one will buy one. I was excited to see that Craft Zine has linked to a sewing machine cover tutorial by Not Nigella. […]

  10. […] wanted to share her Sewing Machine Cover Tutorial with a matching inspiration board. Head over to Not Nigella for […]

  11. Thanks for the tutorial. I need to do the same!

  12. Love this! My machine is filled with dust too. I’m going to use your tutorial and whip this up after my son goes to bed! One question- did you glue on the trim or add it when you were topstitching? Rad choice of fabrics!

  13. Thanks for all the feedback and kind words!

    Becks – To attach the trim I used a very open zigzag stitch, I used the same yarn last week so I’d already tested it out then, there’s a clearer picture of my test strip and the stitches I tried out about half way down this post🙂

    Hope that helped!

  14. I keep my sewing machine in the dining room, since I lack a crafty space of my own, and I really would like to cover it up when it’s not in use. Thanks for the tutorial! It made perfect sense, and I can’t wait to try it.

  15. I just found you from Sew Mama Sew! I am going to make this later today. I need a pretty cover for my sewing machine, and I need something quick, easy, and fun to get away from garment sewing. I will show you it when I am done : )

    Now I am going to enjoy the rest of your blog : )

  16. Love that cover!! The fabric rocks….I must be on the lookout for it!

  21. […] Experiment over at MomAdvice! It came from Amy’s Notebook Entry on 07.03.08, and comes from Not Nigella. It was easy to make and free for me because I made it with one of my favorite fabrics in my stash […]

  22. I wanted to make a cover for my sewing machine today. Could you send me the pattern for this one?

    Thank you

    Grandville, Michigan

  23. I loved your cover! I have not made it yet but used the same fabric you chose to cover my sewing chair (as soon as I figure out how to send you a picture, I will). Can you tell me how you made the cute matching pin cushion?

    Thanks!! Patricia
