A new sewing machine cover. Out with the obscene plastic, in with the wincingly cute handmade.
Sewing machine cover tutorial offered by Ellison Lane Quilts ellisonlane.blogspot.com.
Underneath its lovely new cover, sleeps Midori---the Janome 6600.
And here are some pincushions, made with scraps culled from the bin and a little time to play:
They are hefty at 5 inches across, and weighted with craft beads under the polyfil. These fellows won't go skittering away. Notice the treasured bit of Heather Ross camper van fabric. That pincushion will be winging it's way to the West Coast as a gift to a dear friend that actually drives one of those pop-tops around town. Actually takes the fam camping.
It is not an ironic pop-top---it is used for its intended purpose.
I cannot begin to describe the depth or breadth of my envy. . .
