Sewing Machine Cover and Catch All Thing

Hi All,

Mayya over at Sew Chic and Unique has a Sew It group. They made a Thread Catcher and I thought that I would post my project that was made a long time ago with some other friends. The difference with mine is the added sewing machine cover to match and mine has more pockets. What mine does not have that I would love to have is a pin cushion, so I think that is clever! I also do not throw my threads in because of Isra's same complaint of not being able to get out the threads easily when it is time to clean.

It took me a while to figure it out as what I was given was my friend's actual piece and I suck at trying to figure out making patterns! Another friend came over and basically mapped out a way verbally for me and ended up making the thing herself. I had to close it up in the back and decided on my pockets and sewed that part up! Thanks Olga!

Anyhow, I look forward to the next Sew It project and hope to play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Now Alia I am guessing that took way more than my 1 and half hour effort LOL! Good job. I think if you stitched a little zip lock bag into the inside of one of those pockets it might work for your threads too.

Yeah, I'm not as clever as you! It did take FOREVER only because I get stuck on what to do. Anyhow, I love it!

Alia I love it, its so blue and bubbly looking and the tool holder is a really good idea, I think I may have to make one too. I agree about the thread catcher, I have a lovely one a friend made for me but it is a pain trying to get all the threads out again lol
