At a recent guild meeting I picked up a shopping bag off the free table. This was a cheap one from the local Dollar Store. I brought it home and noticed that it needed one seam restitched so I set it in the studio for a few weeks.
|It fits over the Featherweight!|
I folded up the bag to see how much I needed to shorten it and pinned it in place.
I thought about having pockets for accessories and decided against it. They would have gaped open and collected dust. I really wanted a simple dust cover to put over the machine when it wasn't being used.
I wanted to cover the Dollar Store's logo so I took a scrap of red felt and cut out a heart. With tear-away stabilizer behind, I used a blanket stitch to sew the heart down. I then used a satin stitch setting to make the letter S.
The S could be for Singer or for Sherri!
There you have it! This is a super easy, super inexpensive cover for your little FW.
It took less than an hour to make. You could argue that it cost less than 99¢ because I got the bag for free. Let's say that all the thread and the felt heart equals 99¢. Ask me if I care? hahahaha
